Rolling Stones' Ronnie Wood Artwork In Largest Ever Exhibition

08/08/2012 16:34

We all know that this year marks the 50th anniversary since the Rolling Stones formed. And, much to the dubious excitement of the band's fans, artwork associated with the ageing rockers is creeping into galleries all over the place.

This time, it's actually been created by an ageing Stone - Ronnie Wood. Wood, normally associated with large hair and guitars, also makes art. Art which can be seen at his largest ever show, including some pieces which have never been seen before.

Wood's study of the band, 1979

Ronnie Wood: A Major Retrospective of 50 years of Rock and Roll features work which documents Wood's life in the limelight as well other sketches and drawings.

Personally, based on these images we're not convinced he missed his true calling as an artist, but maybe we're being a little harsh.

What do you think? Worthy of an entire show, or just another example of the artwork pandering to the rich and famous?
