Paintings by iconic musicians Jimi Hendrix and Bob Dylan are set to go under the hammer at an auction in Britain.
A psychedelic image of a snake, painted by the Purple Haze hitmaker in 1967, portrays the late star's ideas for a stage set to be used by his band the Jimi Hendrix Experience. It is expected to fetch $7,500 (£5,000) when it is sold off at the Cameo auction house in Reading, England on Tuesday (03Aug10).
A charcoal canvas by Dylan, entitled 'Super Man at 110th and CPW (Central Park West)' is expected to sell for $15,000 (£10,000).
A spokesman for the auction house, Alan Pritchard, tells Britain's Daily Mirror, "Lots of rock stars turn to art and these are two of the biggest names. Dylan has some incredibly obsessive fans and the estimate for his picture is surprisingly high considering he is still alive and working."
