These paintings have nothing to do with Gary Lamont. These paintings were offered for salefew years ago with dealer A.M. from Winnipeg.

I am curious if the "anonymous" from previous posting is related to KRG, of Coghlan Art or Gabe Vadas?

Ok - so lets find out who Anthony's source was in Thunderbay....
Not sure how involved he is in the Morrisseau market anymore as I have not heard about him in a while! Perhaps his source has dried up already.

Your fishing is not going to pay off... Your bait is too weak.

STOP SUGGESTING THAT PAINTINGS ON THESE BLOG ARE FAKE OR JUST TRY TO FIND ANOTHER BLOG THAT SHOWS ART OF NORVAL MORRISSEAU IN BETTER AND MORE RESPECTFUL WAY THAN THIS ONE.

Thank you Spirit Walker for honourable presentation of the Great Canadian - NORVAL MORRISSEAU!

C.T. here
for the record I have never said anything is fake, I cant speak for others, but I do have to lean on the side of credibilty as opposed to those who will not answer even the most basic of questions.
help yourself. I do feel for TB888 he has gone through the ringer, he should step up as he clearly has time and money invested in this matter. others are willing to help and listen, but only to things that are logical.
again I'm not on anyones side, I have asked blunt questions from all sides.
I too thank the blogmaster as this is exactly what blogs are for.

As a dealer in Norvals work for more than three decades and having the pleasure of spending many hours
with the blog master, I must say he is one of the most informed collector of Norvals work that I have ever met. My hat is off to you spirit walker, not only for the class you have shown but also for the restraint you possess. Norval would have been proud.

Ok above clearly states fake but not everyone is saying the paintings are fake. Asking for provenance is not saying they are fake - it is simply asking for the origin of the piece. If you slowed down and stopped worrying and assuming everyone is calling these paintings fake you would realize that by asking for the provenance of these paintings and others that all seem to be in question then we would build creditability around them that those who scream fake could not argue anymore.

comment from bigPinTO
As I believe that "silence is golden" this will be my first and only posting to this blog.
I wish to share my thoughts and experience in this forum,and my comments are not intended to solicit or promote any gallery or individual.
Several years back, I walked into the KRG in Toronto and purchased a nice work,(published in "travels to the house of Invention") Prior to this ,off the street purchase, I had never been in the gallery, nor had I ever met any of it's staff. I had full confidence in the gallery simply by it's reputation.
Last Tuesday, again having never spoken to or met Mr Ross, I called him, we talked for a while, and I puchased a work which is currently marked SOLD on his web site.
(both times I was fully aware of the buzz in the community)again, this transaction was possible, as I went on reputation and provenance. no issue.
I wish to stress again, I am not promoting anyone, this is my personal experiance only.
I will say this. I have no issue with either of these two purchases.
I would further like to express my thought on the future.
the catalogue will take 10 years or so to compile.
well documented Morrisseau work's will increase dramatically in price over the years to come.
works with little, or no history will be priced accordingly.
as someone already posted."perhaps there is a Morrisseau for everyone"
thanks
and good luck to all.
