Dear Colin

I have forwarded a report on your paintings under separate cover. I trust you have received this. Please let me know if this is not adequate or if you have any further questions.

I might add that everything I told you about you Canadian friend is readily available on the internet if you Google  his name together with Gregoire Boonzaier. Also I have never seen these paintings before.

Kindest regards

To  whom it may concern

 

This is to confirm that I have examined the paintings described below and am of the opinion that none of the five paintings is by the artist it is purported to be by and that all the signatures and dates where applicable have been added by another hand and are not that of the artist named.
