Retrospective

9 August - 22 October 1997
Plymouth City Museum & Art Gallery

From the Plymouth City Museum & Art Gallery July - October 1997 events programme:

"In 1996 Plymouth became the first public gallery in the UK to place a painting on permanent display. Now the first ever overview of the artist's work premieres in Plymouth before touring to other venues in 1998.

In recent years Lenkiewicz's painting has become more widely appreciated, with collectors in Europe, Australia and North America buying his work. In 1994 an exhibition at Birmingham's International Convention Centre attracted 35,000 visitors in just one week!

This major retrospective, occupying the first floor galleries, is one of the largest exhibitions to be presented in the region this year. Including paintings from Robert's teenage years to his current project on Addictive Behaviour, the show will give audiences a rare opportunity to view a comprehensive collection of the artist's work."
