Bob Dylan: Face Value Exhibition Launched

(Classic Rock) An exhibition of Bob Dylan's art is underway at London's National Portrait Gallery and an influential art historian says the works demonstrate all the storytelling power of the icon's songs.

John Elderfield helped put Bob Dylan: Face Value together. It features 12 pieces made specifically for the show, which runs until January 5 next year with free entry.

It's a departure for the gallery, which specialises in work inspired by British public life by working portrait artists but Elderfield says it's well worth it.

He comments: "The pieces are products of the same extraordinary, inventive imagination, the same mind and eye, by an artist for whom showing and telling the temporal and the spatial, the verbal and the visual are not easily separated." See some of the artwork and read more here.
