Norval Morrisseau Conspiracy Unveiled (Part V)

-
-
--
Exhibit No. 4
-
In the above mentioned 'National Post' article (see Exhibit No. 5), which will be presented in its entirety in the next exhibit, Mr. Donald Robinson (of Kinsman Robinson Galleries) states that he was suspicious of the authenticity of 23 paintings which were brought to him by another collector who purchased them at Kahn Auctions sold by Mr. Randy Potter (auctioneer). Mr. Robinson in the article only mentions that he bought some works of Norval Morrisseau at Kahn Auctions himself. In fact, over the period between late 1999 and early 2000 Mr. Robinson actually purchased 28 painting from the same auction house as the receipts presented below show. He openly encouraged other people to buy them and unsuccessfully bid on another 40 to 60 more paintings from the same auction house.
-
NOTE: The first series of paintings that Donald Robinson purchased at Kahn Auctions occured on exacly the same day as the newspaper article in the previous exhibit.

Donald C. Robinson of Kinsman Robinson Galleries was once an active attendee and bidder at Kahn's Country Auctions in Pickering Ontario starting in September 1999 up until March 2000. It is important to mention that Donald C. Robinson was the underbidder on numerous genuine Norval Morrisseau paintings sold at Kahn's Auctions as those presented on The Canadian 'Anglo-Boer War' Museum' - online edition (click HERE). These paintings are now owned by 'Anglo-Boer War' Museum' had Donald C. Robinson as the underbidder at the auction and were later labeled as "Inferior Counterfeit Morrisseaus" by Ritchie R. Sinclair a.k.a. Stardreamer (click HERE). These auctions were hosted by Mr. Randy Potter (see 'Exhibit No. 20').
-
Mr. Robinson's peculiar behaviour will be highlighted here in this addendum with new supporting evidence that has come to light. As stated in this wxhibit we have shown clearly that Mr. Robinson had purchased 28 genuine Norval Morrisseau paintings at Kahn's Auctions with the original receipts. As stated before Donald C. Robinson was responsible 14 months later on May 18th 2001 for launching a slanderous market espionage attack article that would appear in the National Post newspaper (see 'Exhibit No. 5'). In this newspaper article we have a Donald C. Robinson attacking the auctioneer Mr. Randy Potter and the paintings at this auction for being forgeries which Donald C. Robinson gladly and feverishly purchased. We have made it clear that Mr. Robinson never tried to ask for a refund of the 28 paintings of said 28 artworks from the auctioneer Mr. Randy Potter? However, a refund of $250.00 +GST totaling $267.50 was made by Mr. Potter to Donald C. Robinson in regards to a 'Robert Davidson' painting dated 1975 (see above). We now have the image file of the original 'cheque' issued to Donald C. Robinson by Randy Potter's Kahn's Auctions in this matter.
-
* The unbelievable and strange behaviour that we have exposed here is in regards to the fact that Donald C. Robinson of Kinsman Robinson Galleries requested a refund on a lesser painting supposedly done by Robert Davidson for $267.50 but allowed himself to incur a loss of $53,238.73 including GST from the purchases of 28 genuine Norval Morrisseau paintings. Which he would slander and defame 14 months later in a National Post Newspaper article dated May 18th 2001 as being all fake paintings that he had purchased from Randy Potter and never requesting a single dollar back from Mr. Randy Potter on the 28 paintings that he had purchased? /see 'Exhibit No. 5'/
