Lenkiwicz 2008

April 2008

Lenkiewicz 2008 comes three and a half years after the last major dispersal from the estate of the artist which was conducted by Bearne's (now Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood) at Westpoint, on the instruction of Peter Walmsley of Boyce Hatton Solicitors, the executor of the Lenkiewicz estate.

Every item in the sale is directly from the estate of Robert Lenkiewicz and since his death has been held in storage. The Executor will retain a small core group of work, so along with hundreds of drawings and sketches, Lenkiewicz 2008 includes the remaining monumental and important paintings from the estate and will be the last major dispersal.

The sale includes work which spans the whole of The Painter's life, from the 1950s when Lenkiewicz lived in Hampstead, ranging to work completed in the year of his death. Work that covers almost 50 years which in itself is a documentary of the path, the style, the attitude and the life of Robert Lenkiewicz.
