Mondo Scripto/Knockin' On Heaven's Door Portfolio Sets - unframed
Mondo Scripto - Set of 10 Editions
In his first ever Mondo Scripto collection, Dylan exhibits his own selection of his most renowned lyrics, each handwritten by him in pen on paper and accompanied by an original pencil drawing. Mondo Scripto explores the work of the cultural icon who has been inspiring audiences for the last six decades. “He has made himself a prism through which the music, words, images and experiences that he has found meaningful have refracted in endless variation and become wholly his, and wholly ours – the work of an artist for the ages.” - Mondo Scripto, by Tom Piazza (2018)
‘Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door’ Portfolio
In the question-and-answer narrative that prefaces the Mondo Scripto collection, Bob Dylan asserts that the meaning of a song changes all the time – not just by the way the author sings it, but by the way others interpret it. Many people come to know his songs through the cover versions of other performers. ‘Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door’ has been recorded hundreds of times, starting with Dylan’s hit version in 1973. Recording artists like Eric Clapton, Roger Waters, Babyface and Guns N’ Roses have all attempted to find new meaning in it. In this extended series Dylan illustrates, literally, how a song’s meaning can change every time you approach it. From brooding skies to the cascade of images presented here, it seems that his interpretation of the song truly knows no limit.
