Bob Dylan‘s heavily doodled first draft of “Like a Rolling Stone” just set a record for the most expensive music manuscript sold at auction (see artnet News report). Now, the musician’s artwork takes center stage at Mark Borghi Fine Art in Bridgehampton, New York, with a new painting exhibition titled “Bob Dylan: The Drawn Blank Series.”

In addition to his prolific musical career, Dylan has been honing his craft as a visual artist for four decades. Nevertheless, he only had his first gallery show in 2007 at the Kunstsammlungen in Chemnitz Germany, also featuring “The Drawn Blank Series.”

The paintings in the exhibition are based on entries in a sketchbook Dylan kept while on tour between 1989 and 1992, and cover a variety of subjects, including portraits, landscapes, still lifes, and street scenes.

Dylan’s most recent series of paintings, “Face Value,” is currently on view at Frederiksborg Castle in Denmark, having debuted at the National Portrait Gallery in London last year.

“Bob Dylan – The Drawn Blank Series” is on view at Mark Borghi Fine Art in Bridgehampton from July 4 to July 18.
