He was no less successful  as a family man: his son Jan became an eminent poster illustrator, and his daughter Danuta, a talented book illustrator and a professional pianist, married one of the greatest Polish contemporary writers, Tadeusz Konwicki.  Alfred Lenica has left an impressive artistic estate comprising oil paintings and works on paper which can be admired in museums and private collections. The album traces his artistic path from the pre-war times to the 1970s, aptly capturing the artist’s search for his own means of expression, from an early fascination with surrealism to his last, mature, poetic abstract works.
