We are delighted to announce the release of Bob Dylan’s new hand-signed, limited-edition artworks from The Beaten Path series, available exclusively from Castle Fine Art.
This six-print collection is the latest chapter in Dylan's visual chronicle of American scenery depicting iconic images as he traces the heartland of the country. Featuring epic cityscapes alongside humble roadside motels as well as boundless, limitless railroads, this carefully curated collection of artwork offers a view into some of the most pivotal and powerful images of Dylan's ongoing series which explores and celebrates the American landscape.
The Beaten Path limited edition series was first launched in 2016 and was Dylan’s first major programme since The Drawn Blank Series enjoying great success among our collectors.
The new instalment comprises six hand-signed limited edition prints: ‘Golden Gate Bridge’, ‘Omaha Rain’, ‘Pink Motel’, ‘Terminal Bar’, ‘Train at Sunset’ and ‘Brooklyn Bridge, 7am’; they illustrate the artistic icon’s vision travelling across the USA and find beauty in the overlooked locations that form the backdrop of daily life for most Americans.
Says Dylan: “The common theme of these works is how you see the American landscape while crisscrossing the land and seeing it for what it’s worth. Staying out of the mainstream and travelling the back roads, free born style.
“My idea was to keep things simple, only dealing with what is externally visible. These paintings are up-to-the-moment realism – archaic, most static, but quivering in appearance. They contradict the modern world.”
Featured art: "The Beaten Path - 2023 - Set of Six Editions". These deluxe limited edition graphics are hand-signed by Bob Dylan.
Since releasing his debut studio album in 1962, Dylan's cultural influence has extended beyond music to encompass literature and art. In 2016, he became the first songwriter to win the Nobel Prize in Literature for “having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition”. Such is his effect on wider culture that Dylan's work has been studied in thousands of university courses. At Harvard University, Dylan's work is taught by its Professor of the Classics, Richard F. Thomas, alongside the Roman poets Ovid and Virgil. T.S. Eliot scholar and author of the Oxford Book of English Verse, Christopher Ricks, has called Dylan “the greatest living user of the English language.”
Understanding Dylan's art aids in the appreciation of his singular cultural impact. His art - paintings, drawings and ironwork sculptures reflect his creative journey. An observer of the world, Dylan echoes Warhol, Monet and the Impressionists, valuing the experience over the finer details of the finished image. Of his paintings, he writes: “Every picture spoke a different language to me as the various colours were applied.”
