Leonard Cohen Artworks is an exhibition of lively reproductions based on images from an archive of drawings and journals created by Canadian musician Leonard Cohen over the past 40 years. Cohen, well known as a poet, songwriter and novelist, has kept visual records and sketches throughout his career. Recently the drawings have been used in CD cover art and published in his Book of Longing (2006), a volume of his philosophical meditations.

The mediums for the original drawings ranged from doodles on napkins, watercolour sketches, oil pastels, and charcoal drawings to digital images drawn on a Wacom tablet and imported into Photoshop. Many have heavy black outlines. The artwork was reproduced with permanent pigmented ink on 300 lb. Arches watercolour paper, and first shown in an exhibition called Drawn to Words: Visual Works from 40 Years that premiered at Toronto's Drabinsky Gallery in June, 2007. They were subsequently shown at the Richard Goodall Gallery in London, UK.

The copies shown at Linda Lando are in editions of 100. Each one is signed, titled, numbered, dated, embossed and stamped with Mr. Cohen's personal seal. Many of the attractive images are accompanied by Cohen's witty annotations.
