SLASH, JIMI HENDRIX Paintings By RON WOOD On Display In Paris

Reuters reports that portraits of VELVET REVOLVER/ex-GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Slash and Jimi Hendrix are among the paintings by THE ROLLING STONES guitarist Ron Wood which are on display through June at the Bailly Contemporain gallery opposite the Louvre museum in the heart of Paris while the STONES tour Europe for the last leg of their "A Bigger Bang" tour.

"He is a gifted artist with his own style. The STONES are not getting any younger but Wood's art will be there long after the STONES are gone," gallery art director Helene Bailly said.

The show also features a recent series on the Royal Ballet and a French impressionist-inspired acrylic on canvas titled "Orange Girl with Hat", which was painted with a pool cue.

Though prints range in price from 2,000 to 9,000 euros, drawings from 12,000 to 70,000 euros and paintings from 40,000 to 300,000 euros ($403,400), the pieces are selling quickly.
