Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood are delighted to announce The Lenkiewicz Legacy Sale on Saturday, 28th March 2015 at Noon, which will see important works of the late Robert Lenkiewicz (1941-2002) sold to support The Lenkiewicz Foundation's objective of establishing a Lenkiewicz Museum on the Barbican in Plymouth.

The Painter with Mary in Newspaper Magi-Fool's Hats by Robert Lenkiewicz (1941-2002), also known as 'Paper Crowns', carries 
        a pre-sale estimate of between £30,000 and £50,000.

Our association with Robert Lenkiewicz (1941-2002), The Lenkiewicz Foundation, and now The Lenkiewicz Legacy Sale, goes back to 2002 when we were asked by the Executor of the Lenkiewicz Estate to produce an inventory of paintings and artefacts, and in addition provide valuation and dispersal advice so that the estate could be administered.

The Bishop Started (SF15/155) by Robert Lenkiewicz (1941-2002),
        sold for £100,000 at the Lenkiewicz 2008 Studio Sale at Westpoint near Exeter in 2008.

The Bishop Started (SF15/155) by Robert Lenkiewicz (1941-2002), sold for £100,000 at the Lenkiewicz 2008 Studio Sale at Westpoint near Exeter in 2008.

In 2003, in association with Sothebys, we conducted the first of three incredible Studio Sales, selling every one of the 155 pictures in the catalogue, and this sale was followed by two even larger Studio Sales under our own banner at Westpoint in Exeter in 2004 (see Lenkiewicz - The Studio Sale) and 2008 (see Lenkiewicz 2008). It was here that records were set, led by The Temptation of St Anthony (SF15/397) which sold for £170,000 and the superb portrait of The Bishop Startled (SF15/155) which sold for £100,000.

The Temptation of St Anthony (SF15/397) by Robert Lenkiewicz (1941-2002) set a record for work by Lenkiewicz, realising £170,000 in April 2008.
