TLF collection and resources


The Lenkiewicz Foundation provides information and materials to support any organization or institution wishing to use the work of Robert Lenkiewicz to explore the themes which appear in the painter's work. These materials include the original illustrated notebooks and writings by the artist, the aesthetic notes (works on paper), recommended books, leaflets, posters and an image archive of hi-resolution pictures suitable for publicity materials. If you would like to know more, please contact us on 01752 221450 or e-mail us.

Paintings and Works on Paper
The Foundation's permanent collection may be available for loan. Please contact us for details.

Notebooks & Original Writings
The Foundation is currently preparing the illustrated Project notebooks for publication online.  Robert Lenkiewicz published pamphlet guides to all his exhibitions, which are available on this website under the individual Project pages.

Books, catalogues, pamphlets and gift cards are available. See Publications.

Image Archive
TLF has an extensive image archive of original works by Robert Lenkiewicz that are available for use in publicity material, educational programmes, etc. The archive is freely available for educational use (subject to fair use guidelines). TLF can also recommend photographic image archives for organizations seeking photographs of the artist, his studios, exhibitions, etc.

Educational Materials
Lenkiewicz is the best articulator of his own work and The Lenkiewicz Foundation has made available all his original essays and exhibition notes within its copyright, which can be quoted freely under fair use for educational purposes. More detailed surveys of the life and work are to be found in the recommended publications which public galleries may request from TLF. TLF aims to work in collaboration with other institutions and can provide information tailored to the specific requirements for any given exhibition. We will happily assist in any way we can with existing educational programmes or suggest suitable events complementary to the work on show. To discuss the range of support materials on offer please contact us.
