Died July 5, 2007
If you wish to sell any of Herbert's work purchased from Barrister's Gallery, or elsewhere, please contact us and I will help you find a buyer. Because I have  
been Singleton's dealer and friend for over 15 years,  I am most familiar with his
carving and painting  techniques and can provide you with a document 
certifying the authenticity of your piece.

It came to my attention eight years ago that, unhappily, while I was in the
complicated process  of moving thousands of pieces of inventory from Royal
Street in the Quarter to what is now my  former location on O. C. Haley Blvd,
in 1999-2000,  unscrupulous, pernicious dealers acquired pieces which were
unfinished and subsequently augmented  and painted by others--an enterprise,
apparently that began even earlier—I have already tracked down six of these
forgeries. It has also become  apparent that another New Orleans carver has
tried to emulate Herbert's style and subject matter and  already passed on
some of his own work as Herbert's.  Put your mind at ease, or go get
your money back.
