Rare Bob Dylan Painting Sells For Nearly $200K At Auction

Following Bob Dylan’s motorcycle accident in 1966, the singer retreated to his Woodstock, NY home and took up painting. One of the early abstract pieces that Dylan painted around 1968 has just sold for $196,156 at auction. RR Auction house announced that the painting was up for sale on Dylan’s 83rd birthday on Friday, May 24, and it sold over the weekend. RR Auction described the painting as a “colorful and energetic abstract composition featuring the large central outline of a bull. At the top is the red outline of a man in a brimmed hat—mirroring his own style during his Woodstock days.” Sandy LePanto was a local Woodstock woman who did Dylan’s astrology chart at the time, and the singer traded her the painting in exchange for his chart. The painting had been in LePanto’s family ever since, until it was recently found in her former husband Anthony LePanto’s estate. (People)
