The collection has been greatly anticipated by Dylan collectors worldwide, since Retrospectrum first opened to the public at Modern Art Museum (MAM), Shanghai in 2019. The provenance of these artworks is exceptional, having formed part of an integral display within the exhibition.

Spanning six decades of Dylan’s artistic caree, the display featured more than 300 paintings, sculptures and drawings. The curation united seven series of Dylan’s visual art, along with archival material and brand-new paintings. Following its opening in Shanghai, the exhibition then toured to the Today Art Museum in Beijing and the Jupiter Museum of Art in Shenzhen.

Titled in celebration of the international tour of Bob Dylan’s major museum retrospective, The Retrospectrum Collection comprises six new hand-signed limited edition graphics. With the unframed portfolio selling out before the official launch, and a limited number of framed sets remaining, we expect this release to sell out quickly.

These highly collectible works explore the sheer breadth of Dylan’s achievement and his monumental impact on the world as a musician, poet and artist. Printed using the fine art giclée process on a 100% cotton paper, the stunning scenes feature recurring motifs from Dylan’s portfolio – including landscapes, city life and architecture – along with rarer compositions, making them a fantastic addition for collectors of his art. 

Within this series, we see a nod to the Impressionist colour palette of The Drawn Blank Seriesthe clear draftsman’s hand of Mondo Scripto, and resonances of the street scenes and travel-focussed compositions of The Beaten Path. This collection constitutes an emotionally intelligent retrospective by Dylan, whose ever-evolving artistry continues to position him as one of the most revered cultural icons.
