    BBC Spotlight's Johnny Rutherford reports on a spectacular canvas by Robert Lenkiewicz that will be taking pride of place in Leipzig's Spinnerei cultural centre this summer. Painted for a commission in 1977, the painting depicts the architects and city planners who created most of Plymouth's distinctive landmarks. Lenkiewicz appears in a self-portrait with some of the characters whom civic progress seems to have overlooked. 'Plymouth Building its Future' is 2.28 m x 5 m. The owners informed TLF that after a polite reminder that the work was overdue (which the artist is wearing around his neck), Lenkiewicz marched from The Barbican to Union Street with the canvas rolled up on his shoulder to deliver it.
