    I have some recent experience of a couple of these:

    Esther seated


    A print only value might be £5-600.

    Study of Anna (mirror) st Anthony theme (artists proof 4/25)


    I recently saw a framed copy of the limited edition for £725. I suspect the artist's proof would carry some premium over this price.

    Anybody able to offer a more qualified opinion of the values ... or able to comment on Jason's other prints???

    I’ve just received this info via email … hopefully it will give some indication of current market values:

    Several months ago I purchased Esther seated A/P from Triton Gallery. Exeter for £1,495. I also bought Roberts self portrait at 90 from their Gallery in Torquay for £2,500 and Anna seated £1,200. The frames they mount the prints in are superb, for Lenkiewicz fans their Gallery is worth taking a look.

    I had a look at the gallery as you suggested Dave but their prices are about DOUBLE the cost of them on Ebay – I don't mind someone making a living but …….

    Triton Galleries have a reputation for many things, but being cheap certainly isn't one of them 😀

    Your correspondent must be gutted: the pre-sale estimate for the Self Portrait with Self Portrait at 90 is £750-£1000 at Dreweatt Neate. Irrational exuberance?

    To be fair, the ones in the auction are likely to be the lithograph version of this print, and not the silkscreen that the £2500 one was.Having said that, I'm sure we shall all be glad to see the end of the 'job lots' of this print that have been a regular feature of recent Rendells and Dreweatt Neate (and Fenners before them) sales ::)

    Isn't it nice to see that there's an army of people out there who love the art of Robert Lenkiewicz so much they can't wait to share it with others?

    exactly, its the same old pictures it seems, in every bloody auction. Mind you, I'm only dissapointed as I want to see more lenky pics I havent seen before. I am starting to think Robert only ever made a tiny proportion of the work he claimed to have created.

    John I am pleased that you have mentioned the fact that Lenkiewicz did not paint as many as he said.The simple fact is he did not.There are far less Lenkiewicz originals around than most people think.Lots of drawings, he was allways sketching.Watercolours mostly for his own use and pleasure.Oils, yes lots, but not the thousands everyone keeps talking about.This is why the same pictures keep appearing at auction.In time people will look back at prices today and say I could have bought a Lenkiewicz for a couple of grand once.I put out a challenge.Send in images to this sight that are not allready on it,let's have a count,(no forgeries there seem to be more of those than the real thing)

    Problem with a count is all those back door pictures…. Robert was great at keeping everyone in the dark about lots of things the number of books he had, the studios, the women , and the paintings. I think now that the truth about lenky is coming out ( the REALISTIC truth) I think his reputation is improving and makes him perhaps more palatable to the 'Art' world . I wouldnt be surprized if nearly all of roberts paintings cant be found outside of the image gallery on this great website. oh, by the way did he ever keep any record/diary of his day to day production? Hard to imagine , but most painters do....

    This would be a good place to start a count, the back door pictures belong to someone.It isn't so much about numbers more to see fresh work.No,
