© Bob Dylan,The Vineyard, 2010 © Bob Dylan. Acrylic on canvas, 76,2 x 101,6 cm


A group of women are harvesting grapes by hand, placing them in wickerwork baskets. Here, the spectator is cast in the role as an uninvited visitor interrupting the women in their work, causing them and the two men monitoring them to stop what they were doing and stare, silently, directly at you.

This is one of several paintings in which Dylan addresses motifs that reflect a way of life that disappeared years ago in Northern America and Western Europe with the advent of industrialisation.
