Bob Dylan's Paintings Slammed by Critics


Bob Dylan's Paintings Slammed by Critics


'When we talk about music, Bob Dylan is one of the great Picassos of the 20th century, but this is not the case for his painting,' one critic says about the singer's art works.

Bob Dylan has failed to win over art critics in Denmark after a series of his paintings went on display at a museum in Copenhagen - one expert has dismissed the singer as an "amateur". The Brazil Series exhibition, which features 40 of Dylan's specially created acrylic paintings, opened at the National Gallery on Friday, September 3 but the 69-year-old star's efforts have been panned in the local press.

One Berlingske Tidende critic writes, "When we talk about music, Bob Dylan is one of the great Picassos of the 20th century, but this is not the case for his painting." Meanwhile, art history professor Peter Brix Soendergaard tells the Information paper, "Bob Dylan paints like any other amateur, using a rather oafish figurative style. He is what we used to call a Sunday painter."

However, Karsten Ohrt, the head of the museum, has stood by Dylan, insisting the singer's paintings are worthy of a place in the National Gallery. Ohrt says, "We think that Dylan is a quality painter and he attracts a lot of interest among Danish painters and art collectors."

The exhibition runs until January 30.
