    Your point about mould forming on the inside of glazed pictures stored in the worng conditions is very valid. I too bought a picture with extensive mould on it and have sent it for restoration. I viewed your kynance sketch and decided it was too bad for me to buy. Mould on canvas is one thing, mould on paper another! Robert liked his paintings glazed but increasingly people are removing the glass as it makes the pictures very heavy and liable to damage if they fall. This was the case of the silver lake painting when the timber wall collapsed on it. On he other hand it does protect pictures from dust and accidental or deliberate spills etc. I think Robert did it because the viewer could see their reflection when viewing a picture. Apologies for previous post of mine. In the light of knowing why you were waiting to make your update.

    Besides, in view of other problems regarding these Estate works, that I will describe later, these questionable circumstances are, after all, minor.

    So minor it would appear, now not worth re-visiting? The auctioneer made it clear these lots were sold as seen. If people are daft enough to bid on the phone or internet without seeing them it's their fault. If they had asked any questions Bearnes would have answered them faithfully, I am sure.

    If Lenkiewicz is to be taken seriously then action needs to be taken to establish his work in the mainstream. Surely the latest sale must have left TLF with at least 1 million profit if my sums are correct?Frustrated as me. Leave your views below.

    If pictures by robert lenkieiwcz are now fetching hundreds of thousands of pounds at auction, I think someone is taking him seriously. His paintings have for some times traded at these prices between dealers and collectors.What exactly are you frustrated about dutch?

    £2m plus figure includes Bearnes 20%. The kyffin williams position has been debated at length here before. As Billybudd has previously pointed out, Kyffin Williams gave hundreds of paintings and papers etc to the welsh nation BEFORE he died. Also there is a political and public pride in welsh achievers. It may well have been different if Robert had fled to Newport rather than Cornwall when he left London. TLF will get what they get once boyce hatton wind up the estate. No amount of posts here will speed that up!! If the website hasn't been updated for 5 years a few more months or so would make any difference,surely? How about adding to Billy's list on the other thread. A hierarchy of what TLF should do once they have their inheritance?

    Billy I think some of your ideas are really excellent. I was going to reply by trying to distil your post into a list of what you think TLF should do. But then I reflected and thought it was not my place to do so. But I think if you were willing to do this and maybe produce a list …..in a hierarchy, this could be of help to the trustees of TLF.Your ideas of providing a digital record of the paintings/ pictures

    Fair comment Billy, but the changes have been pretty recent and I guess they are waiting to see what happens to the estate and still formulating their future plans. I would imagine they would wish to avoid going off half cocked. You seem to know a fair bit about lenkiewicz. What would you like to see the new board do?

    Good spot sartre but dont we feel Lenkiewicz was here first?

    I think Goya beat Robert to it! By a few hundred years maybe? Painting the dying wasn't an original idea, however I am not saying Robert wasn't brave to do it.

    I must admit I think your piece was halarious CID. But surprised codename for the enforcer was not “The Hammer”. Wondeful observation, even if a little unkind…. funny though!

    Thanks for that Jojo. I will have to leave this thread for someone else to finish. I think reuben's mother was Monica and am awaiting confirmation of this.I am leaving this forum as Francis has called a day. It's a shame but I can't bear that Kevin has taken over and posts these diatribes and questions peoples integrity all the time it's outrageous.I was hoping Dave Goodwin would have stepped in earlier but showed no inclination to do so.

    Well, that's put the tin lid on it, as my old nan used to say. I did try and warn you all that this was going to happen.I implored you not to reply to anything this idiot Kevin posts. I even tried to warn him off him with the Superiority complex posting (which I think he may have in all seriousness).

    Kevin, I see you have included a particulary crap painting by me in that jpeg. Please remove it its embarrassing. By the way, although I was 'influenced' by ROL and for a while doing dodgy self portraits with lenky high lights in the hair, I never was his student . I am my own artist, I don't need to bask in anyones shadow.

    KEVIN................ "I never was his student" or are you as blind as Tobit?
