Churchill Art Piece Called Into Question

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.

(Excerpt) See the rest of the article, and photo comparisons of the 2 pieces of art here: http://news4colorado.com/topstories/local_story_055200531.html

This guy stands for nothing! He is nothing!

My thoughts exactly. I don't think he can bully his way out of this one.

I'm still laughing, too, Howlin.

Opinionator was certainly quoting General Custer, "Holy Shiite, look at all those left-handed Indians!"

Was Asst. Secretary of HEW a part-time job? Because in looking around to verify this, I'm finding that Berry was in that role under Carter from 77-80. But 76-77 would seem to be an awfully short time to be chancellor of CU Boulder.

It's that hair that made you think that, right?

He's not an Indian.

He's not a paratrooper.

Can't find his thesis.

His story about smallpox on the blankets was a lie.

He fakes pictures.

What have I forgotten?


***Geez, be fair! Churchill does not faked his proMarxism.

I know I have seen this picture before...possibly in a child's Texas history textbook or some other common source like that...I almost think the girls(s)? are in separate photographs or paintings in their original context and Ward has possibly spliced the two girls into one "work"...But the person on the left definitely looks familiar to me.

It would be fairly easy to sent the cropped and enlarged grouping to a few of the many Indian historians on the web, asking them if the people look familiar, without telling them why you want to know. It might even help to see it in black and white, most likely its original form:

There are a lot of old Indian photos, but there number is finite...and there are not so many of them that someone, somewhere hasn't seen them before...in a museum, a textbook, or elsewhere.

Call them. Bet they'd like a few $$$ from this rich, white man. Think of the lawsuit as a call for reparations from when his ancestors gave their ancestors small pox laiden blankets.

Actually, let's be clear - an incident with smallpox-infected blankets given to indians in order to deliberately infect them IS true. However, it was the english that did it, not the United States army...

Gotta make sure that truth doesn't get screwed up because of Churchill's fraud.

When are the people of Colorado America going to get rid of this fraud?

The guy that was subbing for Rush yesterday, Rosen, played an audio clip of Churchill. After a litany of "get the US out of...(VietNam, Indochina, etc.) he yelled at the crowd that the US should be gotten out of North America and off the planet.

I was physically sickened at his hateful vitriol. I mean sickened. This turd can't be flushed quickly enough IMO. He's a good argument for bringing back public punishments.

Here's another one of his "original" pieces of art:


"Short Bull (Red)" an original composition by Ward Churchill

vs.


original photograph of Short Bull (Sioux, Brule). "Tananka Ptecela," Brule Sioux Medicine Man (1845-1915) Short Bull, along with Kicking Bear, was the principal leader of the Ghost Dance religion among the Sioux at Pine Ridge and Standing Rock Agencies. The white man misinterpreted the pacifism of the new faith--the result was the death of Sitting Bull and the infamous massacre at Wounded Knee (December 29, 1890).

Shoot, all he needs is a photocopier, Paint Shop, and a silk-screen frame to pop out one of these $1500 babies. "Original Composition" my @$$.

Perhaps an art professor at the University of Colorado who specializes in Indian art can identify it. LOL. Then another prof con opine on art copyright violations...
