"I consider Manitoulin Island to be the most sacred place in Canada" Norval Morrisseau
Have you noticed the painting hung on the wall in the background?
I am certain that the painting on the wall is from the 1970s and as you can see it was painted in similar style as the numerous paintings posted on this Blog. To those of you that consider this painting to be in category of the "questionable kind" I will post the following questions:
1. "How come that numerous galleries across Canada have been selling this kind of paintings for years without anybody stopping them to do so?"
2. "Why would galleries like Maslak McCleod Gallery in Toronto, ON; Bearclaw Gallery in Edmonton, AB and Qualicum Frameworks Gallery in Qualicum Beach, BC risk their reputation spanning several decades being involved in selling non-authentic art pieces of Norval Morrisseau?"...
... and last but not least: "Why would Norval Morrisseau together with Gabe Vadas attend the Gathering on Manitoulin Island with non-authentic painting being hung on the wall?"
* Thanks to the individual that would like to remain anonymous I acquired this photograph showing Norval Morrisseau and Gabe Vadas attending the Gathering on the Manitoulin Island in 1999.
