"PrĂ©cis – On Jun 22, 2017 Ritchie Sinclair, claiming it was a fake, and acting entirely on his own, orchestrated the dismount of his friend, Kevin Hearn’s Morrisseau painting “Spirit Energy of Mother Earth 1974,” at an Art Gallery of Ontario musical gig, where Hearn AKA “sandwiches,” had put it up on the wall.

This was part of a longtime campaign by Sinclair and his cabal of cronies, to target and discredit both Morrisseau BDP paintings, and Joe McLeod, the main Kinsman Robinson Galleries Morrisseau business competitor, who had sold “Spirit Energy” to Hearn.

 The documentation makes clear Sinclair accomplished, this brazen act of cultural vandalism by simply bamboozling a couple of gullible, witless and uncredentialed, minor AGO retail gals, into participating with his fraudulent scheme to discredit “Spirit Energy” and Joe McLeod.

The record is clear, that, over the next three months, though the takedown happened on AGO property, there is NO documentation that acknowledges any official AGO participation, or the giving of any directive of any kind from AGO Director Matthew Teitelbaum, or Curator Gerald McMaster. Nor do either, or the AGO, accept responsibility of any kind, in calling for “Spirit Energy” to be taken down, and/or calling it a “fake.”

This totally dismisses, with merit or substantiation, the entire Sommer/Hearn Statement of Claim, that says the AGO aka Curator McMaster as having authorized the takedown and discredited “Spirit Energy” as fake.

Just one of many reasons why this lawsuit should NEVER have been brought.

On Dec. 5th, 2017, lawyer Jonathan J Sommer made his opening statement, before Justice EM Morgan, on behalf of his client, the Plaintiff, Kevin Hearn. Hearn claimed the Defendant, Joe McLeod, had fraudulently sold him a painting “Spirit Energy of Mother Earth 1974,” in May 2005, knowing it was a fake.

Mr. Sommer claimed that Hearn was alerted to this fraud by a dismount of “Spirit Energy,” as a “fake,” by Art Gallery of Ontario Curator Gerald McMaster, during an AGO musical gig where Hearn displayed the painting, in June 2010."
