Around 100 works will give the German public an overview of the work of this still little-known artist.As a child of Jewish immigrants Robert Lenkiewicz developed based on an old masters painting style already during his studies at Saint Martins College of Art and Design. As subjects he chose, however, often the marginal figures of society, drug addicts, the mentally ill or political persecution. In 20 projects, as he put it himself, he worked on working groups devoted to topics such as chronological time "jealousy," "self portrait", "suicide" or "Landscape".Regardless of the fashions and trends within the art scene, Robert Lenkiewicz was to paint in his way, and to grapple with both classical themes of painting as well as pleasure and eroticism, loyal.Leipzig as a place to choose the largest Lenkiewicz exhibition is due to the fact that there is a strong biographical identity of the artist and his family to the city because his parents lived before fleeing to Britain in Saxony. Additionally, Leipzig is famous for a strong painting tradition, a tradition to which Lenkiewicz has always oriented. All his life he was inspired by the writings of the philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, is also the title of the exhibition is borrowed from him.June 24, 2013 at 1:04 pm #11164

Yes,well done Dave. That Google translation can make everything sound more like Double Dutch though. German TV filmed and it will go out on a culture program on Thursday at 10pm.June 25, 2013 at 3:55 pm #11168

Sadly I haven't got there yet but am still trying. what i'd like to know is why Rbert can get this publicity there but not here!! >:(July 5, 2013 at 7:59 am #11171
The number of visitors mentioned in the reports seems small – is that starting to change? And what are ordinary Germans saying about the exhibition, as opposed to the media and art establishment there?July 5, 2013 at 5:00 pm #11172
Yes it'll be interesting to hear what 'the man on the street' in Germany thinks! The Germans are not known for their cultivation of the visual arts (contestable comment?), but with ROL being Jewish, would this also be a separate factor of interest to them? Either way, there must certainly be food for thought.July 15, 2013 at 12:25 pm #11173
Just back from a weeks leave. Have been reading about the Leipzig School of Painting in the first essay in my exhibition booklet. An essential purchase for ROL followers.http://visualandcriticalstudies.com/2010/03/19/the-history-of-the-leipzig-school-of-painting/That, and my Kraftwerk Biography. 8)German culture is of great interest; not sharing a common tongue with America; therfore more European. Interesting to compare American and German culture, and then think of the influence of American culture on British culture.
