German gallery gives Dylan his first art show Add to ...

The first-ever exhibition of paintings by folk and rock legend Bob Dylan will go on show in the German city of Chemnitz tomorrow.

The director of the city's Kunstsammlungen museum said it took only two days to persuade Dylan, 66, to put the 175 watercolours and pastel drawings on show.

Director Ingrid Moessinger said that after Dylan agreed, he completed 320 portraits, landscapes, still lifes and nudes over the course of just eight months.

Dylan cannot attend the opening of the exhibition, which is titled Bob Dylan - The Drawn Blank Series, because he will be playing a concert in Chicago.
