“Throwing the Old Man Under the Bus” – Part 1

bus_KRG_650On April 19, 2015, Kinsman Robinson Galleries of Toronto, Canada, announced on its blog an event I had predicted would inevitably come, years ago, just after KRG started its fakes HOAX, on May 18, 2001. I knew that the day would come when the formerly self-styled Principal Morrisseau Dealer, Don Robinson, would have to become another Primary KRG Bus Victim.

That predictable historic moment has finally come to pass.

Keeping my record of predictions, concerning the lives and activities of people involved in the Morrisseau HOAX, at a jaw-dropping, whopping accuracy rate of 100%.

That, folks, is better than DNA accuracy.

This historic and inevitable moment has been heralded in a KRG blog entry that formally anointed Paul Robinson, the son, the successor to his dad’s KRG mantle, just like Haiti’s “Papa Doc,” passed his to “Baby Doc” Duvalier, and Korea’s Kim Il-sung, to Kim Jong-il, and he then to Kim Jong-un. Just like handing the Presidency around in the Bush and Clinton families.

The KRG family history passed on by the father (Donald) to the son (Paul Robinson) is summarized here, in pictorial form, for those who find reading a challenge.

One of the humorous lowlights in Don Robinson's career was when he was doing some industrial espionage at Artworld of Sherway, and when asked his name by a staff member, replied "Mr. Smith." Everyone in the gallery instantly recognized him. You decide whether his disguise was effective, any more than trying to pass himself off as a Morrisseau expert...

One of the humorous lowlights in Don Robinson’s career as an art dealer was when he was doing some industrial espionage at Artworld of Sherway. When asked to sign his name in the guest book, by a staff member, Don trying to hide his sneakiness, brashly signed off as “Mr. Smith.” Everyone in the gallery had of course, instantly recognized him, for who and what he was. You decide whether his disguise was any more effective, than trying to pass himself off as a Morrisseau expert…

See how many of the lowlights of Papa Don’s wheeling and dealing life as a so-called Morrisseau expert you can pick out… And identify all the victims the KRG bus has rolled over… Then make your own list of the many scores of others we’ve omitted…

Remember, Donald Robinson is burdened for the Ages, with the hugely documented title of “the Worst Art Authenticator in History,” after his testimony, his so-called expert reports, and all his claims have been universally discredited – without a single dissenting finding – by six Canadian court judges, a Toronto Globe consulting lawyer, and several top forensic scientists and handwriting experts.

Donald Robinson’s completely documented legacy, as a totally failed Morrisseau expert, and his multiple rejections by numerous judges, as a credible and believable “expert witness” in courts, are now the business baggage he has saddled his son, Paul, and KRG with, for the Ages.

But don’t feel sorry for Paul; he has been more than deeply involved in everything from the start, in spite of the fact that his Dad has, deliberately from the beginning, tried to take on his own head, the entire responsibility to keep his son’s skirts, and inheritance – Kinsman Robinson Galleries – clean of taint from his father’s business manipulations.

Another lowlight from Don Robinson's infamous career as a Morrisseau authenticator. Here in a famous pose, he evaluates "Jesuit Preist." He claims he spent six months researching and writing a so-called "expert report" of 100 pages, trying to prove it was fake. Collaborating with him were NMHS founding member Richard Baker, KRG's Associate Director John MacGregor  Newman, and KRG Enforcer Ritchie Sinclair. Judge Godfrey ignored the report - judicially dissing it as well as the accompanying testimony of Robinson and Sinclair, and just refused to call it a fake. A top forensic scientist later authenticated the painting, as BDP signed by Morrisseau, with DNA certainty.

Another lowlight from Don Robinson’s infamous career as a colossally failed Morrisseau authenticator. Here in a famous pose, in 2009, he tries to evaluates “Jesuit Preist.” He claims he spent six months researching, writing, and producing a so-called “expert report” of 114 pages, trying to prove it was fake. Collaborating with him were NMHS founding member Richard Baker, KRG’s Associate Director John MacGregor Newman, and KRG Enforcer Ritchie Sinclair. Proving four times zero, is still zero, Judge Godfrey ignored the pompously fabricated report, judicially dissing it, as well as the accompanying testimony of Robinson and Sinclair, by just obstinately refusing to call Jesuit Preist a fake in his judgment.*** Instead he advised the owner, Otavnik to get it forensically tested. A top forensic scientist later authenticated the painting, as a genuine BDP signed by Morrisseau, with DNA certainty. *** As the only investigative journalist to cover this story, I personally heard and saw the trial, the testimony, and the devastating judgment from the bench. Adding another discredit to the bio of Papa Don, the self-styled Principal Morrisseau Dealer and self-styled Morrisseau expert.

But just running the KRG bus over Donald will NOT keep either Paul or Kinsman Robinson Galleries inviolate from the hugely documented charges that they have deliberately given the finger to Joe McLeod and his fellow Morrisseau art dealers, and to the authenticated and genuine Morrisseau paintings in the hands of hundreds of Morrisseau collectors, by starting and promoting a claim of forged paintings that is nothing if not the biggest HOAX in Canadian history.

Just to enrich themselves by promoting, as genuine, only the Morrisseau art they sell at KRG, while dissing and scorching, as completely forged and fraudulent, the hundreds of authenticated genuine Morrisseau paintings sold by their highly reputable business competitors.

And claiming that thousands of genuine Morrisseau paintings in their hands and hundreds of honest private collectors are only fit for burning…

Explanatory details on this and my annotated version of the KRG blog posting “Throwing Dad Under the Bus” to come…
