Bob Dylan’s Simple Twist of Paint


Apparently, Tony Bennett isn’t the only iconic American singer who wields a brush. The first-ever exhibit of Bob Dylan’s original paintings (one of them is here) will run at the Kunstsammlungen art museum in Chemnitz, Germany, from October 28 through February 3. Museum director Ingrid Mössinger first came across Dylan’s paintings in his 1994 book, “Drawn Blank,” which contains the singer’s sketches made between 1989 and 1992. “I was fascinated to learn of Ingrid’s interest in my work,” Dylan said in a statement. “It gave me the impetus to realize the vision I had for these paintings many years ago. If not for this interest, I don’t know if I even would have revisited them.”
