NOTE:  It is important to mention that this silkscreen titled "Ojibway Medicine Man" which was labeled as an "Inferior Print #3" by Ritchie R. Sinclair was called an "Authentic Norval Morrisseau" painting only 24 days later. Even more peculiar is that both of them ("Inferior Print #3" & "Authentic Norval Morrisseau") were presented on www.morrisseau.com for more than five months until they were deleted on April 12th, 2009 by its webmaster.

What can I write to better the accolades you have already received since you started the fantastic research on Morrisseau and other native artists. Your persistence on collating the facts in the face of opposition from other blogs is to be admired. I have stopped viewing such deprecatory blogs and am not surprised by the demise of these. Following through your research material is often a lengthly process but worth the effort because it is a great learning experience. Continue with your fantastic research and continue to make the truth prevail.

Spirit Walker, I am looking at your blog today. Just wanted to say that I actually own the print "Ojibway Medicine Man" from 1975. I know for certain that my father bought it in 1975; I remember when he brought it home. I was a child, but very moved by it even then. When he passed away, my mother gave it to me; it has been in our family for 35 years. It is signed, numbered, and dated in pencil at the bottom. I would, in no way, call it an "inferior print" -- it is beautiful!

After reviewing this latest post; how can anyone possibly rely on this individual;Ritchie Sinclair's ability to discern what is a 'real Morrisseau painting' and what is a 'fake Morrisseau painting'? By your screen captures of before and after activities;you have shown that Mr.Sinclair has at many times 'flip flopped' on what he has shown to be an art forgery and later on he has deleted this information off his website after you have discovered the descrepency? It doesn't take much to see that Mr. Sinclair is an angry and envious individual.I am deeply disturbed by his usage of his internet handle'Black Magic'; which we see on his postings hundreds of times over. For an individual who claims to be 'spiritual';how can he justify his usage of 'Black Magic' which is to my understanding used to incure fear and curses through hexes and spells? It would have been much better for Mr.Sinclair and other artists to have concentrated on painting and marketing their own art into the market place than spend all this energy and effort to condemn something they claim to love and respect? The death of Norval Morrisseau in December 2007 could have and should have been used as a launching platform for Canadian Woodland artists to reap the rewards of international fame. All would have profitted;artists and vendors.Fear and envy have become these people's unfortunate masters;coupled with a desire for self allown.Most of these people today I believe see the errors in their ways.Now they are left wondering how they can eat a meal out of the ashes that they created themselves?Hypocrisy makes a poor and tasteless sandwich.

Cheers and goodluck to all!

You have proven without a doubt that the supposed "Morrisseau experts" are in fact self-serving fraudsters. Clearly these "experts" are calling legitimate Morrisseau works counterfeits or fakes. They should look in the mirror and question their own legitimacy. Spiritwalker, thank you for fighting for Norval Morrisseau's legacy!

Mistakes can be made, but to repeat these time and time again needs to be explained. It's hard to understand Mr Sinclairs' motive or the apparent support he received from Mr Robinson. They must have been convinced and check with other 'experts'to arrive at their conclusions. Is there any chance of hearing how they arrived at their fake decisions? Your blog is about the only one that might be arrange this. I wouldn't like to see such a critical subject aired on other blogs that attack yours in a rather distasteful manner.

Excellent presentation and in line with the information you have posted in/on your blog since its inception. Your information draws heavily on the public domain that is hard to refute. The research is excellent and should be commended.

It's too bad that Ritchie can't make up his mind. Real or not real? Im also surprised that someone like Kinsman Robinson Galleries would want to be associated with Ritchie since they are such a "reputable gallery". I will use that term losely.

Thank you Spirit Walker for honouring Norval and his works. The writing is on the wall and has been for along time. Hold your head high. KRG has alot of sheep following right now that dont form their own opinions but rather are brainwashed into what KRG wants them to believe so they can contain the market.

The truth is there are 1000's of original Morrisseau paintings out there for sale at really good prices.

I find it funny that KRG and Gabe state that Norval never used the dry brush technique yet KRG sold a painting of Norvals' at aution that was drybrushed.
