Exclusive paintings by Bob Dylan on show at Burnley gallery
EXCLUSIVE artwork by Bob Dylan has gone on display in Burnley.
The Howarth Gallery displayed eight new pieces of work from The Drawn Blank Series on Saturday in a one-off exhibition.
Based on the original drawings and sketches made by Dylan while on the road from 1989 to 1992, the watercolour and gouache paintings were created in 2007.
They were were released for the first time this year and cost £1,250 each.
They are said to visually echo the stylistic hallmarks of Dylan’s prose, poetry and music.
Penny Howarth, owner of the St James’s Street gallery, said: “It is great that we can display this work, Dylan is such an iconic figure and it attracts a lot of interest.
“This is the fourth year work from the Drawn Blank Series has been released, with new pieces of work on show every year.
“It is only published in the UK so attracts a lot of worldwide interest as well, people from all over the world view the images online.
“We have a very mixed crowd that come to the gallery to see the work.
"Young people might not have grown up with Dylan but they know him.”
The gallery has displayed new work from the series for the past four years and was one of a number of smaller venues chosen for the series.
