Who is the Norval Morrisseau Heritage Society, what are they hiding & who are they protecting?

 Revised - Originally published on  March 31st, 2013

Norval Morrisseau @ NMHS, Toronto October 2005 [1]


"The Norval Morrisseau Heritage Society was allegedly established at the request of Norval Morrisseau even though he could no longer talk, and mentally he had “left the building.” They were supposed to research, document and preserve his artistic achievement and protect the integrity of his art. They were supposed to achieve this mission by establishing and maintaining a registry of his works, publishing and updating a catalogue raisonne of his artistic output and providing the necessary expertise to authenticate his art."

~ Committee members of the NMHS are as follows (CURRENT and PAST):

* Dr. Ruth Phillips - Professor of Art History, Carleton University, Ottawa, Ontario;
* Greg Hill - Curator of Indigenous Art at National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa, Ontario;

[1] - For backround history related to this blog post's photo illustration, which involve members of the NMHS observing genuine Norval Morrisseau paintings submitted to NMHS by Mr. Donald Robinson of Kinsman Robinson Galleries, please read "Norval Morrisseau Declarations Are Hoax /Michele and Gabor Vadas Exposed/ (Part I)" & "Norval Morrisseau Declarations Are Hoax /Michele and Gabor Vadas Exposed/ (Part II)".

NOTE: The paintings submitted to NMHS were all purchased over the period between late 1999 and early 2000 by Mr. Donald Robinson from Randy Potter Estate Auction. All of these genuine Norval Morrisseau paintings were signed by the artist with a dry brush (DB) technique.

BLOG MASTER'S COMMENT: Why are they silent? Is their silence approval for what has been happening in Canadian courtrooms and in the Norval Morrisseau Art Market?

If they truly care in "protecting the integrity of Norval Morrisseau's art" they would need to speak up. Their inactions "continue to hurt the legacy" of the man they are supposed to protect. 

Actually they have already "lost all credibility" in the eyes of those whose "art collections and livelihoods" are being "devalued and destroyed."

>>> In a court judgement Hatfield vs. Artworld of Sherway /Court File No. SC-09-087264-0000/ Judge Paul J. Martial stated the following:

"The Court finds that there is overwhelming evidence that Norval Morrisseau signed paintings in black brush paint.” (Judgment by Judge Paul J Martial: March 25th, 2013 - Page 34)

NOTE: Genuine Norval Morrisseau painting involved in this court case was also acquired from Randy Potter Estate Auctions and appraised by Mr. Joseph McLeod.
