A series of Bob Dylan's paintings are to go on display at the National Portrait Gallery.

The series of 12 pastel works are a mix of real and fictitious characters and will be displayed at the London museum from August. It will be the first time Dylan has exhibited his work in the UK since 2008, when The Halcyon Gallery showed a collection of Dylan's drawings from 1989 and 1992.

The director of the National Portrait Gallery, Sandy Nairne, said: "Bob Dylan is one of the most influential cultural figures of our time. He has always created a highly visual world either with his words or music, or in paints and pastels."

Bob Dylan: Face Value will be in the Contemporary Collection displays at the National Portrait Gallery, London, from August 24, 2013 to January 5, 2014.

Bob Dylan will release a new album of rarities and previously unheard recordings later this month.'The Bootleg Series, Vol. 10 - Another Self Portrait (1969-1971)' will be released on August 26 and will contain 35 tracks recorded during the 1970 studio recording sessions that resulted in Dylan's 10th and 11th albums 'Self Portrait' and 'New Morning'.
