"On the other hand, there are those dealers - including Joseph McLeod and collectors like Ugo Matulic and Joseph Otavnik - who believe that the issue of fakes is really a non-issue, a trumped-up conspiracy by Kinsman Robinson and Gabe Vadas to corner the market."

Armand Garnet Ruffo (NORVAL MORRISSEAU 'Man Changing into Thunderbird, 2014; Page 290)



I am very disappointed that Mr. Ruffo did not do a proper research prior to publishing some of the material presented in this book, which is incorrect and misleading information provided to him by media (who are notorious for having failed to do proper research for their own articles) and those whose actions continue to devalue millions of dollars of art assets of countless collectors/admirers of Norval Morrisseau's art.

An extensive review and critique will be provided on these pages soon.
