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.

Tears are rolling down my cheek while I LOL!
If you were to superimpose the negative image over the positive image, you would have nothing, which is what this imposter has made of his life so far.
I'll be very surprised if Drudge has not picked up on this story by the time I get home from work this afternoon. Gotta go.
From the harriet carter.com website
$5.98 (2 for $9.98)
Unique drawing tool is a fun way to develop children's artistic talent! It reflects any printed picture (from a magazine, book, etc.) onto a blank sheet, allowing child to trace the outline. Develops eye/hand coordination and is more challenging than simple coloring! In addition to reflector, kit includes 6 drawings and 6 blank sheets. 8" x 6".
its not a copy its an "homage"
I originally purchased this print, in 1980, directly from the artist, Ward Churchill, when living in Boulder, Colorado. It is a limited edition, signed and numbered. It is in excellent condition, although there is a very small spot on the left side of the matt, and two very small smudges on the print. The one thing Churchill does great is his Native American Indian art.
This guy could well be the Scott Peterson of the academic world.
From the seller: I have an original Lithograph by Professor Ward Churchill. Yes it is true folks, you may not like him or think he's a little strange. But the guy is a very good artist.
Sorry Flyer, #192 is to you too.
Honest to God, I just cannot believe this.
Oh, well done!
The one thing Churchill does great is his copies of Native American Indian art.
LOL Flyer...how did you find that? I've been surfing around like a madman. Clearly TexianCowboy.com has copied Churchill's original. Ya think?
I'll buy breakfast for the first one to find the original this one was copied from.
