Norval Morrisseau Conspiracy Unveiled (Part IX)

-
-
-
Exhibit No. 8

- APPRAISALS DONE BY KINSMAN ROBINSON GALLERIES FOR PAINTINGS PURCHASED FROM KAHN AUCTIONS
-
Kinsman Robinson Galleries claim to be experts with respect to the authenticity of Norval Morrisseau paintings. Presented below shows an appraisal done by Kinsman Robinson Galleries from a client who clearly states where the paintings were purchased (Kahn Auctions*) and the subsequent appraisal as of August 18th, 1999. Also, another appraisal done on October 30th, 2001 of the paintings also purchased at Kahn Auctions has been presented. In both cases the Kinsman Robinson Galleries provided appraisals. It is funny that the same auction house where Mr. Robinson purchased his Morrisseaus says are now fakes were appraised and authenticated by his own gallery as being authentic.
-
NOTE: The first presented appraisal was issued to a KRG's client on August 18th, 1999 which is a month before Norval Morrisseau went together with Gabor Vadas to Manitoulin Island as per 'Exhibit No. 3' and the second appraisal was issued just five months after the 'National Post' article was published as per 'Exhibit No. 5'.

NOTES:
It is critical to note the date on the second appraisal done by Mr. Paul C. H. Robinson of Kinsman Robinson Galleries. The document is dated October 30, 2001 which was five months after Donald Robinson of Kinsman Robinson Galleries launched a market espionage attack on Khan Auction with 28 paintings that Donald Robinson had purchased from said auction house (see Exhibit No. 5 for the 'National Post' article from May 18, 2001). These 28 paintings were never returned nor money was ever refunded back to Donald Robinson of Kinsman Robinson Galleries. The presiding auctioneer Mr. Randy Potter had never been approached by Mr. Donald Robinson for a refund. Mr. Randy Potter would have gladly and consented to this request if it had been made. Mr. Donald Robinson successfully purchased 28 lots of paintings in the amount of $53,238.73 including GST during the timeframe between late 1999 and early 2000 (see Exhibit No. 4 for the receipts from Kahn Auctions showing the Norval Morrisseau paintings sold to Mr. Donald Robinson).
-
The four paintings presented herein that were appraised by Kinsman Robinson galleries are of the same typical style and quality pieces from the 1970's that Norval Morrisseau has become so famous for.
-
Whatever became of these 28 paintings one must ask? They were never returned as logic would dictate but were given supposedly to the Norval Morrisseau Heritage Society (NMHS) for research purposes. These 28 paintings were quite likely never given to the NMHS for research purposes. They have most likely been sold a long time ago and or kept in storage for future sales if Mr. Robinson's diabolical attack should prove to be a bitter fruit and a haunting memory of cause and effect.
-
So, Mr. Paul C. H. Robinson how do you explain your strange actions? Five months previuosly you and your father are dissing 28 paintings from Kahn Auction but yet you were appraising four paintings coming from the same source and supplier (i.e. Randy Potter > David Voss, Thunder Bay, Ontario)? /see Exhibit No. 9/

NOTE: Even the above painting has been inscribed on the canvas verso with black paint and appraised by Paul C. H. Robinson of the Kinsman Robinson Galleries.
-
In August 2008 KRG made the following hypocritical statement in regards to the black painted incriptions found on genuine Norval Morrisseau paintings:
-

"In twenty-eight years of dealing in Morrisseau's art, I observed that Norval had rarely written anything on the back of any canvas, but when he did, it was always in pencil or ballpoint pen - never in black paint."...... Further they say; "And, generally speaking, he didn't title his paintings on the front - rarely on the back side either."
