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.

Simply stunning. This is a mirror image. Some of you gurus out there can probably figure out in 2 seconds just how it was done.

LOL.....we're all thinking the same thing!

In response to continued questioning, Churchill became aggressive, pushing a handful of paperwork in front the TV camera, and soon after, swiping his arm at the crew.

It won't be long now; he's gonna blow.

A serigraph is a print made using a silk-screen process. Doubt it was difficult to use the original to make the print. Chief Fake Injun was probably running a t-shirt silk screening business on the side.

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.

It's an original work by me, after Thomas Mails ... the fact that the purchaser was ignorant of the reality of what was perfectly publicly stated at the time the edition was printed is not my responsibility," Churchill said.

Do you believe that sH*t?

On which side of the silk does one draw the image?

The guy is shameless. The original artist definitely has grounds for a suit. It's pretty obvious that Churchill simply traced over the orginal art and filled in the finer details so that it would reproduce easily through the seriagraph (silk screen printing) process. The mirror image aspect was probably a result of placing the tracing face-down directly on the screen when the emulsion was burned.

Yep....yep:

In 1976, Berry became chancellor of the University of Colorado, the first African American woman to hold that post at a major research university. (Till 1980, I think!)
