    ...I haven't seen this self-portrait before?? Anyway, I'm getting deja vu, because again, an unfamiliar painting comes up on ebay, then suddenly the seller withdraws it before the end!

    The self portrait that you are referring to was listed on ebay by someone who did not own the painting. The item was withdrawn from ebay when the miscreant was threatened with police action, as it was a clear deception. The world is full of fools!

    It's not silly season that makes these fakes appear. They are being offered for sale by people who have bought these fakes in good faith and paid good money for them. The items are ended early because there are forces at work that point out that these works are fake and it very often comes as a big shock to the sellers.

    To try and fob the painting off on someone else with a starting price of £18k is just asking for trouble. You have to question the thought process of someone that would pay anywhere near that for a work of this standard in the first place, especially without having it's authenticity verified?

    Good point krauser, but you are assuming they pay near what they are asking as a starting price and that they know it to be a fake. In many cases the forgers pass these off by playing on a common human trait

    A whole load of very dubious drawings are currently showering eBay:http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Lenkiewicz-original-ink-drawing-own-collection-RL9_W0QQitemZ260422148923QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_art_drawings_GL?hash=item3ca25ea33b&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A2108%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A12%7C39%3A1%7C240%3A1318%7C301%3A0%7C293%3A1%7C294%3A50This seller has recently sold similar drawing/s, and there are various 'givaway' similarities to them all - despite the fact that this particular one is terrible (not by ROL's hand anyway)!!!

    Yes, Luke… the seller says they are from his [or her] private collection & says that although not signed they are obviously by Lenkiewicz. He/she missed out a word … as in … obviously NOT by Lenkiewicz.I find them all unconvincing. Not just the one you have linked here; all of them. I suppose it's a case of caveat emptor but I don't like all these blatant fakes being brought to ebay. It's already been observed that greed is a powerful motivator and that it sometimes blinds people but ... I think it's unacceptable that these are 'out there' and labeled as Lenkiewicz.

    Most or all of these drawings appear to be by one and the same person (who is not Robert Lenkiewicz). The first appeared on eBay #250265949357, auction end 9 July 2008, seller: orchardart. This drawing reappeared at Golding Young & Co., Grantham, 8 Oct 2008, lot 735C, then on eBay #170271493909, end 19 Oct 2008, seller: museumofwales, then again on eBay #170284120517, end 07 Dec 2008, seller: museumofwales, then on eBay #150346034245, end 18 May 2009, seller: bitterandtwistedmumof6.Together with the first drawing, others were offered, among them: eBay #260258052123, end 9 July 2008, seller: orchardart. Interestingly, this drawing then appears in Golding Young & Co., Grantham, 04 March 2009, lot 500, as one of several in the lot.
