The reason behind NORVAL MORRISSEAU BLOG


/Preceded KRG's $1,000,000 SLAPP suit against Ugo Matulic /
   CASE WON BY THE DEFENDANT


From left to right: "Bryant the Snake, 1988", "Don Robinson - The Shark in Still Waters, 1990" & "Ritchie the Thief in the Night, 1988"
- All paintings  © Norval Morrisseau


"The reason why I started this blog more than a decade ago was due to false statements made by Kinsman Robinson Galleries, Coghlan Art Studio & Gallery and individuals* closely associated with Norval Morrisseau regarding paintings in question. I felt the need to create a platform that will speak for Norval when this privilege to speak for himself was put in the hands of others that were only interested in their personal financial gain by putting the Legacy of Norval Morrisseau aside."

Mark Anthony Jacobson
> The only individual who was signing with his full name as a commenter on Kinsman Robinson Galleries blog was Mr. Mark Anthony Jacobson who at one time operated one of the vilest blogging sites in the blogosphere where he character assassinated Mr. Goyce Kakegamic, Mr. James Simon MISHIBINIJIMA, Mr. Joseph McLeod (1928-2017), Mr. Gary Lamont, Mr. Joseph Otavnik, Michael Moniz (1965-2013), members of Norval Morrisseau biological family, myself and some other individuals.

Mr. Jacobson for "Upper and Lower Worlds, 1978," considers this genuine Norval Morrisseau painting "is fitting to be used as "ass wipe" and is suggesting to "use this roll of garbage at your discretion" as "you may not want to get "any on you."

Canada’s Dirty Little Secret – Exposed by Forensics, Sep. 2017

"KEY DISCLOSURE - in anticipation of, and preparatory to the Hearn lawsuit, I have, over the years, sought out key original paintings which the fraudsters called "fakes" for forensic examination. I was singularly successful." ~ John Goldi, copyright 2017



















Image/text by Mr. John Goldi CSC, Copyright 2017.

~ “CSC” Canada’s highest honour for a director of cinematography – “for outstanding achievement in the art of cinematography” by the Canadian Society of Cinematographers, the professional organization of Canada’s film and television cinematographers.


The following copyrighted section is an excerpt taken from, “theMorrisseauHoaxExposedBlog.com,” and used with permission from the author John Goldi.

"As a professional historian for over 48 years, a longtime Canadian art collector, the Director of Research, and the Acquisitions Curator, of a Canadian museum collection of over 4,500 antique paintings, material memorabilia, and historical commemoratives, the story of the Morrisseau forgeries aroused our interest.

As a longtime, leading Canadian visual artist – as a top Canadian cinematographer, and film and television editor, for over 36 years – exploring and evaluating visual media of all kinds has been, not only a professional preoccupation for decades, but a personal passion for over sixty years, since I was given my first camera in 1953.

 I have made sleuthing out frauds, fakes, and forgeries, and the kinds of people who deal in them, a specialty of mine, and have published many academically analytical and sumptuously illustrated articles on topics dealing with: fake combat photographs, fake military bugles, fake bronze art sculptures, fake history book illustrations, etc., and on authenticating antique paintings, and historic memorabilia items made of ceramics, wood, metal, parian, plaster, fabrics, and leather, and other materials.

After having spent years of documentary, and “on the ground” research, on the so-called Morrisseau “forgeries,” speaking with dozens of the main parties involved, and spending more time in court – by far – than anyone else has, listening to the contesting sides in the dispute, telling “their side” to various perplexed judges, we can safely announce that the whole story about the “Morrisseau forgeries” is a total and absolute hoax…

And that the very few people who have collaborated to perpetuate it, will never recover their reputations, in this world, or the next…

And we can shout “HOAX” without the slightest fear of contradiction, from anyone, in this world, or the next…

ALL the science and ALL the independent experts are in full agreement on which paintings are authentic. And are at total odds with the tiny handful, of self-serving naysayers.

This blog will publish our research and proof that the story of the Morrisseau forgeries is, in fact, nothing, if not THE GREATEST CANADIAN HOAX OF ALL TIME…"

"Upper and Lower Worlds," 34" x 80", © 1978 Norval Morrisseau

PROVENANCE: Mr. Bryant Ross acquired this acrylic painting on canvas from an art dealer Mr. Anthony Martinenko of Winnipeg, Manitoba who acquired it from personal collection of Mr. Rolf Schnieders (1928-2015) of Thunder Bay, Ontario.
/Click on image to Enlarge/

~ This painting, authenticated by Norval Morrisseau(*), exhibited as a FAKE painting at SAW Gallery in Ottawa, Ontario by Mr. Bryant Ross who is director of Coghlan Art Studio & Gallery in Aldergrove, BC.


(*) Bryant Ross stated at his 'Norval Morrisseau Online Gallery' that "These paintings were guaranteed to be original and authentic and were obtained from the artist or authenticated by him." (click HERE for screen capture of the original web page as it appeared in May 2005).

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Ms. Carmen Robertson* noted that Mr. Schnieders was "well-known conduit for Morrisseau's paintings in the Thunder Bay region" and was "actively handling works by the artist since 1960s. He operated small store on May St., in Thunder Bay ON called 'Yesterday's Treasures' for a number of years and this was one way he sold works by Morrisseau." 

* - An associate professor of contemporary Aboriginal art history in the Department of Visual Arts, University of Regina, Regina, Saskatchewan & Member of the defunct Norval Morrisseau Heritage Society (NMHS)

-----------------------------------------------------------------

The following was a message to me (Ugo Matulic) from Bryant Ross of Coghlan Art posted on blog maintained by Mr. John Zemanovich, former director of Norval Morrisseau Heritage Society (NMHS):

"Again you post the fake painting, “Upper and Lower worlds”. Norval personally told me that this painting was not his. That is why it was taken off my web site. I still own this abomination. Sometimes I throw it on the floor of the studio and let people walk on it.

This painting and others like it have come to embody the continuing suppression of native culture that is perpetrated by unscrupulous people that honour cash above truth.

You and your friends are not the first to do this.

It began shortly after European contact with North Americas’ native inhabitants when it was thought to be okay to steal from the “Savages”. Rape and murder were used to keep the “Savages” in line. Religion was stuffed down their throat in an early attempt to kill their culture. And when it came to money there was always some white man ready to ripe them off, trading beads and liquor for valuable commodities like furs.

The Norval Morrisseau Art Fraud continues the rape of native culture.

The beautiful little story that was told to me by Norval and you stole from my web site has nothing to do with the painting. How would it? Norval told me that the painting is fake.

The paintings in our gallery are guaranteed. That is why this painting was taken off the web site.

You think you can twist information to use for your own needs. Your blog is bullshit and you are full of it.

Bryant Ross - Coghlan Art, April 4th, 2011"


-----------------------------------------------------------------

The above Bryant Ross' comment was posted at Ritchie Sinclair's blog post titled "Unauthorized Norval Morrisseau Blog operator, Ugo Matulic, Sued for $1 Million (December 23 2010)"*; dated April 4th, 2011.
