Warning to Morrisseau Art-Buying Public

The Norval Morrisseau Heritage Society (NMHS) issued the following public statement back in December 2006: "The NMHS is aware that there are many works available for sale to the public that are falsely attributed to Norval Morrisseau. When buying a work of art, ask the art dealer or art gallery about the origin and source of the work. Did it come from the artist directly, or from some other source? Inquiries about the work's provenance or history are advisable, as it is to become familiar with the artist's work and pricing in other galleries, auctions and exhibitions." Write to the Norval Morrisseau Heritage Society, P.O. Box 4430, Station E, Ottawa, ON K1S 5B4  E-mail: norvalmorrisseauheritage@gmail.com
