This painting was given by the artist as a gift to the Lord Mayor of Plymouth, but it was promptly returned after the subject matter was understood. Lenkiewicz said of 'The Bishop in 1997: "He’d arrange himself as neatly as a parson when he sat down saying, 'Always keep the creases in your trousers. Don’t shit ‘em or that’ll have the creases out!' He’d say it almost like clockwork as he folded himself up, even if he was only sitting down for a minute."
