Copyright of works and images on this website

Copyright in the work of R.O. Lenkiewicz (1941‐2002) is vested in The Lenkiewicz Foundation Trust.


Numerous photographs within the archive of biographical material which the Foundation inherited from the artist have no identifiable author. They are used on this website for educational purposes. If you are the photographer and would like to discuss copyright in any given image, please e-mail us.

Application for copyright licenses

As an educational charity The Lenkiewicz Foundation grants copyright licences on the basis that the proposed publication or commercial arrangement furthers its own aims and objectives; namely, the promotion of public knowledge of the life, work and ideas of Robert Lenkiewicz.

The Foundation receives varied requests for permission to print, ranging from student essays to national periodicals and commercial publications. Its minimum standard is for factual accuracy (conventional art captioning should be observed) and good quality reproduction (without cropping, overlay, etc) of any images used. We provide guidelines for this. Wherever possible, TLF itself will aim to assist publishers by supplying hi‐resolution copies of requested images from its own image archive. There is a small administration fee for this.

In order to make a decision regarding your application we would be grateful if you could let us know more about your proposed publication. We ask all applicants to supply, to the extent possible, the following information:

○ Synopsis of publication

○ Context in which the image(s) will be reproduced

○ Title of journal or periodical, if applicable

○ Table of contents

○ List of editors/contributors/authors

○ List of images or plates

○ Book dimensions & page count

○ Print run (include language editions)

○ Publication date

○ Cover price

○ Name and address of publisher

○ Name, job title and contact details of person authorized to sign a copyright agreement

Obviously, any further material, such as a sample chapter, would be very helpful. Once this information is received, it will be submitted for review to our copyright committee.

Please note that under no circumstances should you proceed with any reproduction of images (or text) without a signed agreement.
