/For detailed examination click on image to Enlarge/

The above presented genuine Norval Morrisseau artworks were examined and certified by the following Forensic Document Examiners and Handwriting Experts: Mr. Brian Lindblom of 'The Document Examination Consultants Inc.' (Ottawa, Ontario), Dr. Atul K. Singla of Worldwide Forensic Services Inc. (Toronto, Ontario) &  Mr. Kenneth J. Davies of 'Hawkeye Studios (Grapho-Lab® Services)' (Calgary, Alberta). 


/All of these paintings were part of six court cases which over the period of ten years have never been able to successfully point out one case where it was proven that someone made, sold, distributed or even marketed one "fake" Norval Morrisseau painting - FOR MORE INFO SEE BELOW/


"His (Ritchie Sinclair's) methodology in identifying forgeries is clearly inadequate and suspect since he testified that he does not even view the original paintings before condemning them as fakes." (Court judgement "Hatfield vs. Artworld of Sherway" by Judge Paul J Martial: March 25th, 2013 - Page 16)

~ Additionally, in the appeal for this court case Madame Justice Mary Anne Sanderson ruled the following:

"Similarly, the trial Judge was entitled to reject the evidence of Sinclair and to conclude it was unsupported and unreliable. Sinclair could produce no documentary evidence to support his assertions that a well organized forgery ring painted the works auctioned by Kahn Auctions."
(Ruling by Madame Justice Mary Anne Sanderson: December 17th, 2013 - [18] Page 3)



Critical scientific professional analysis has hit pay dirt once again! But leaves an agonizing conclusion that Norval Morrisseau, his manager Mr. Gabor Vadas and his wife Michele, were all in on a 'market conspiracy' to dismiss earlier works of art by the artist himself and to knock out the competition. Was Norval Morrisseau able to make any judgement for himself and that Mr. Vadas and his wife Michele acted on their own to take advantage of a frail man for their own personal gain? The affidavits were signed by Norval Morrisseau who was not of a sound mind and who supposedly made claim that artworks listed were not painted by him?!

Ten of the paintings shown in the above "Genuine Norval Morrisseau Collage" are part of allegedly signed Norval Morrisseau's sworn affidavits which were sent to Artworld of Sherway, Gallery Sunami, Randy Potter Auctions and Mr. Gary Lamont

Other paintings also certified by forensic science are number of paintings listed in allegedly signed Norval Morrisseau's sworn affidavit sent to Maslak McLeod Gallery from Toronto Ontario (click HERE).

~ It is important to note that these allegedly signed Norval Morrisseau's sworn affidavits were addressed to the main competitors of the principal Morrisseau dealers which were closely associated with Mr. Gabor Vadas and, for the last decade of his life, incapacitated Norval Morrisseau: Kinsman Robinson Galleries from Toronto, Ontario and Coghlan Art Studio & Gallery in Aldergrove BC.

One of these sworn affidavits, sent to Mr. Gary Lamont, allegedly signed in the presence of a Notary Public would conveniently and mysteriously show up on the internet shortly after the death of Norval Morrisseau who passed away on December 4th 2007 (click HERE & HERE).

In this affidavit (click HERE) there was also presented a set of seven with fourteen signatures written by pencil on front and painted with a dry brush (DB) technique on the verso of each of the acrylic paintings on paper (SEE SEVEN IMAGES OF GENUINE NORVAL MORRISSEAU ARTWORKS ABOVE, BOTTOM ROW). These fourteen signatures have been positively identified to have been authored by Norval Morrisseau. These discoveries were conducted and documented by Full Time Forensic Document Examiner Mr. Kenneth J. Davies of 'Hawkeye Studios (Grapho-Lab® Services)' (Calgary, Alberta). This report is dated July 29th, 2011.

NOTE: This report has been generated for Ugo Matulić of Calgary, Alberta and is the first in a series of Forensic Reports done by Mr. Davies analyzing the Signatures on artworks done by Norval Morrisseau.

>>> 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 received the statutory declarations of Norval Morrisseau and letters filed by the Plaintiff in support of the allegation of forgery. This evidence was relevant and although hearsay was admitted since it was relevant to the central issue - Was the painting a forgery?

"In assessing the reliability of that evidence however, the Court notes that since this evidence was not subject to cross-examination it had to be carefully weighed in light of the testimony of all of the witnesses.

"The Plaintiff's own witness Donald Robinson provided viva voce testimony of Norval Morrisseau's inconsistency and difficulty in identifying his own work, and of his unpredictability.

"He agreed that Morrisseau could have memory problems from 2003 to 2006, and of his decline in health due to his illness.

Robinson's admission that he was not surprised that Morrisseau would sign a certificate of authenticity to please also cast doubt on the reliability of the statutory declarations signed by Morrisseau.

"His testimony coupled with the testimony of other witnesses of Morrisseau's Parkinson's disease raises a significant doubt of the reliability of the statutory declarations.

"Although a letter from a lawyer who was present at the signing of the statutory declaration and a doctor's letter were filed at trial, no expert testimony of capacity was proffered by the Plaintiff on such a key issue.

(Judgment by Judge Paul J Martial: March 25th, 2013 - Page 37)



... This is a story about an individual whose alleged "efforts to identify Norval’s true artistic legacy" are recognized by Donald C. Robinson of Kinsman Robinson Galleries ["AN EXAMINATION INTO THE AUTHENTICITY OF AN ALLEGED 1970'S NORVAL MORRISSEAU PAINTING" - EXPERT REPORT; September 10th, 2009; Page 74].

Both, Donald Robinson and Ritchie Sinclair were discredited in this pivotal court case relevant to authenticity of Norval Morrisseau artworks (click HERE).
