Dylan paintings heading to Denmark

Major exhibition to feature musician's artwork

Bob Dylan, whose song catalog includes “When I Paint My Masterpiece,” will receive a major exhibition of his canvases at the National Gallery of Denmark (Statens Museum for Kunst) in fall 2010.

Grammy, Oscar and Golden Globe-winning singer-songwriter has been active as a painter since the ’60s; his artwork has appeared on the covers of his own albums “Self Portrait” (1970) and “Planet Waves” (1974) and the Band’s “Music From Big Pink” (1968).

Danish exhibit will feature 100 acrylics and watercolors, including world premiere of 30 canvases from Dylan’s so-called “Brazil Series,” plus many paintings from the “Drawn Blank Series,” first exhibited in Germany and published in book form in 2008.

Gallery’s chief curator Kasper Monrad said, “Several of Dylan’s images reveal an affinity for some of the modernist masters, not least Henri Matisse’s works from the 1920s – a link that is particularly interesting, given the unique collection of Matisse’s earlier works that belong to the National Gallery of Denmark.”

Dylan’s most recent Columbia album “Together Through Life” debuted at No. 1 on the U.S. charts in May. His holiday collection “Christmas in the Heart” is set for release Oct. 13.
