Bob Dylan paintings that have never been seen in public before are going on display.

Denmark's National Gallery is showing 40 acrylic paintings by the singer.

Curator Kasper Monrad said the paintings in Dylan's Brazil Series were specifically made for the Danish exhibition, which opens on Friday.

The collection includes figurative scenes from Brazilian slums, farms and beaches.

The 69-year-old folk singer sketched the scenes during visits to the South American country and then painted them on canvas in a studio.
