Churchill Art Piece Called Into Question
by CBS4 News reporter Raj Chohan
Feb 24, 2005 8:03 pm US/Mountain BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4) Boulder County resident Duke Prentup has been a fan of native American art for as long as he can remember. That love of art took him to the home of Ward Churchill in the early 1980's, where Prentup bought several pieces of Churchill's art, including a serigraph titled "Winter Attack."
"I have enjoyed them ever since immensely, they're obviously up inside my house," Prentup said.
Last month came a stunning revelation, though, as as Prentup flipped through a 1972 book called The Mystic Warriors of the Plains written and illustrated by the late artist Thomas E. Mails. He found a sketch that was strikingly similar to the Churchill piece.

I was thinking the same thing because eBay has strict rules against Copyright infringement. But the copyright owner has to complain to eBay.

There have been 140 replies on this thread and over 1500 views. We all would be amazed at who lurks out there. Watch for "spin-off" articles over the weekend based on this thread. Nice going.
You did great! This made my day. I'll be sorry tomorrow night when my 4 grandkids (under 5) are here though!
I think the reporter Raj Chohan might want to know also....
A cock-eyed optimist?
Oh no. I'm just a simple country boy who got himself mixed up in the high stakes game of world diplomacy and international intrigue.
Yes, sir. Write him right now!
When I posted that eBay page in #57, there were 162 views of it.........it's over 600 now!
yeah,...though the Andale counter on that eBay listing still says 228,...it is much more,not real-time update
A. Right handedness is a Colonialist trait, so the
Indians Native Americans must be portrayed in opposition.
B. He's a Leftist, so had to artistically portray the metaphor.
C. He wasn't smart enough to realize that by reversing the image, he was also reversing the handedness.
D. Both B & C
MFB was hired by Carter, fired by Reagan and re-hired by Clinton?!
Big surprise, the left supports traitors and fakers.
I didn't do anything, really, except post the link. (And find the Ebay auction, which is just icing.) The real credit goes to News4 and Raj, whom I have no connection with whatsoever. Just happened to read it.
I wonder who wrote them for her? Hillery's writer?
you did well. I pinged Raj (sorta, I had to fill out a form)
I'm coming back over on this "fun" thread; that Terri thread was violent! GEEZ.
This brings to mind the old axiom..."Those who can, do. Those who can't (all together, now) - teach!"
So now what about the next obvious conundrum - the fact that he can't even teach effectively?!
Ow! Ow! My brain is cramping...can't...see, can't breathe...
On an IBM Selectric?
