Description


Unique original mixed media 'paint over' giclee print entitled 'Dad's Restaurant' totally hand-embellished with paint by Bob Dylan, 22 x 27.25, signed in the lower border in pencil, "Bob Dylan." The print was published in an edition of 295 by Washington Green (with publisher's blindstamp to lower left corner), and numbered "207" on the reverse. These 'paint overs' do not appear on the market often, and Dylan accomplished only five or six of them on the 'Dad's Restaurant' print; some smudges of the blue paint used appear in the right margin. In very fine condition.

Bob Dylan created 'Dad's Restaurant' as part of the Drawn Blank art series, a visual autobiography capturing his life on the road. This particular example has been entirely painted over with bold strokes—with an artist's hand, Dylan has transformed the pickup truck from bright red to slate blue, dark asphalt to green grass, turned the pinkish sky blue, and enhanced various details in between. A stunning piece from the multi-talented singer-songwriter.
