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, "Dylan’s 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 … are not easily separated." All images below are reproduced from the book.
