    Bob Dylan - "Musical Roots & Branches" Original Eye Magazine Art by Michael Foreman (1968). Brilliantly rendered by prolific artist of children's books, Michael Foreman, this piece of original art perfectly maps the legendary Bob Dylan's influences and those he influenced. The painting shows Dylan's face, sunglasses and all, as the trunk of a massive tree, stemming from roots that end in the names Pete Seeger, Chuck Berry, Woody Guthrie, Hank Williams, Bertholt Brecht, Allen Ginsberg and others, while the branches hold birds adorned with names of his contemporaries he'd inspired, including Leonard Cohen, the Byrds, the Turtles, and Phil Ochs. The background is a green field with a train and big city skyline, all beneath a bright blue sky. Wonderfully imaginative, and filled with easily interpreted symbolism. Included with the original painting, which measures 12" x 15.5", is a copy of the very issue of Eye magazine for which the painting was done. In the magazine is a poster of the fabulous art, measuring 19.25" x 22.25". Painting is in Excellent condition. Magazine in Fine condition, with slight wear and a chip at the edge of the back cover, and an "Advance Copy" stamp on the cover, while the included poster is Excellent, and folded as it was originally.
