Le Puy-Sainte-Reparade (France) (AFP) – Bob Dylan’s first permanent artwork has been installed on the grounds of a winery in the south of France.

“Rail Car” is a large wagon with walls made of iron wheels, bicycle parts, keys and other tools, now sitting among the vines of chic Château La Coste in Provence.

It is part of the famous “Art and Architecture” walking tour of the castle which also includes sculptures and installations by Tracey Emin, Frank Gehry, Richard Rogers – and fellow musician, Michael Stipe of REM.

Dylan is also exhibiting 24 paintings under the heading ‘Drawn Blank’ at the chateau’s art center alongside works by Claude Monet, Henri Matisse and Marc Chagall which are said to have been a source of inspiration.

The 80-year-old has sold more than 125 million albums over his six-decade career and won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2016.

Dylan painted and drew throughout his life and exhibited in major galleries Clement Mahoudeau

He has published several books of his drawings and paintings and exhibited his work in several major galleries around the world.
