An endless touring troubadour, Bob Dylan not only delighted audiences worldwide with his music but along the way capture some of the scenes he encountered on canvas.

Now you can see some of his paintings, along side rare photographs of the musician, in exhibition Bob Dylan’s Drawn Blank Series.

The American found fame with songs such as Blowin' in the Wind and The Times They Are a-Changin, which became anthems for the American civil rights and anti-war movements and over the last 48 years has released 46 albums and written more than 500 songs.

Held up by many as one of the most influential cultural figures of our time, he has always created a highly visual world either with his words and music or in paints and pastels.

The Drawn Blank Series consists of four-dozen re-imagined sketches created between 1989 and 1992 by the 74-year-old. Around 20 of his hugely sought after signed limited editions will be on display at the exhibition in St Albans with several featuring portraits of folk Dylan encountered on his rambling’s.

None of the artworks feature the singer himself but you will be able to see him in a series of images being shown alongside them in iconic photographs taken by Elliott Landy, official photographer at Woodstock(1969) and Don Hunstein who was chief photographer at Columbia Records for many years.
