Lastly, In addition to being one of the most iconic musicians of the modern era, Bob Dylan is an incredible painter, sculptor, filmmaker and best-selling author. Although he is not as well known for his visual art as his music, he still has a considerable following for his expressionistic pieces. This next piece is a stunning example.

‘Bell Tower in Stockholm’ by Bob Dylan

Described as an American David Hockney, Bob Dylan has a beautiful way of painting life as it is seen rather than imagined. He reflects this with the observational composition of much of his work, which is just another expression of how he views the world. This limited edition, one of 295 giclee prints, is signed and numbered (77).         

Price – £3000.00
