LENKIEWICZ - THE ARTIST AND THE MAN by: Keith Nichols
SPECIAL LIMITED EDITION OF 500 COPIES SIGNED AND NUMBERED BY KEITH NICHOLS
The death of Robert Lenkiewicz in 2002 brought to an end the life of a remarkable artist - a genuine phenomenon in the world of art. While his name held a particular resonance in the West Country his work was of international importance and, in the months following his death, his paintings have become increasingly sought after.
Through his painting and in the way he lived his life, Lenkiewicz evoked strong emotions but, in both, he was by no means easily understood and his complex personality requires a deeper understanding if we are to fully appreciate his painting.
Author, Keith Nichols, a clinical psychologist and friend of Lenkiewicz, is ideally placed to provide such an insight into the artist and the man.
This book is an affectionate memorial to Robert Lenkiewicz, together with an analysis of certain aspects of his life, work and psychology.
Robert Lenkiewicz -The Artist and The Man is not a biography as such but rather a look at the man as the author and certain others knew him personally.
It includes many photographs of the artist at work, his studio, intimate portraits, and many complete paintings.
The book is essential reading for all those who would wish to appreciate the life and work of this charismatic artist.
This book comes in a special protective hard-back jacket which duplicates the books sleve
