NATIONAL PORTRAIT GALLERY

Bob Dylan: Face Value

Introduction by John Elderfield.

With over 500 songs, 46 albums and an astonishing 110 million record sales to his name, Bob Dylan (born 1941), now in his early seventies, is turning increasingly to another mode of artistic expression; one that has occupied him throughout his life, but for which he is much less well known. Although Dylan has sketched and drawn since childhood and painted since the late 1960s, only relatively recently has he begun to exhibit his artworks. The 12 works collected in this beautifully produced volume represent his latest foray into portraiture. In an illuminating essay and a rare Q&A with Dylan, curator and art historian John Elderfield explores the story behind these works. For Elderfield, Dylanís paintings, like his songs, are "products of the same extraordinary, inventive imagination, the same mind and eye, by the same story-telling artist, for whom showing and telling Ö are not easily separated."

Congratulations Bob Dylan, Winner of the 2016 Nobel Prize for Literature

Congratulations Bob Dylan, Winner of the 2016 Nobel Prize for Literature

Today, the world learned that singer, songwriter, poet and artist Bob Dylan has won the 2016 Nobel Prize for Literature for "having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition." Surely, fans and foes are now racing to review his lyrics, written over a career spanning more than half of the last century. We are delighted to recommend some supplementary reading in Bob Dylan: Face Value, published to accompany Dylan's recent exhibition of paintings at the National Portrait Gallery. Esteemed essayist John Elderfield writes, "Dylanís paintings, like his songs, are "products of the same extraordinary, inventive imagination, the same mind and eye, by the same story-telling artist, for whom showing and telling Ö are not easily separated."
