GUARANTEED AUTHENTIC - COA available upon request. Joseph Henry Sharp (September 27, 1859 August 29, 1953) was an American painter and a founding member of the Taos Society of Artists.
He painted American Indian portraits and cultural life, as well as Western landscapes. President Theodore Roosevelt commissioned him to paint the portraits of 200 Native American warriors who survived the Battle of the Little Bighorn. While working on this project, Sharp lived on land of the Crow Agency, Montana, where he built Absarokee Hut in 1905. Phoebe Hearst (mother of William Randolph Hearst) bought 80 of Sharp's paintings of Native Americans. This enabled him to quit teaching and devote himself to painting.
Hearst commissioned an additional 75 portraits to include members of every major Great Plains tribe. The entire collection was eventually donated to the University of California, Berkeley. Over his lifetime, Sharp produced around 10,500 works of art, including oil paintings, etchings, monotypes, pastels, and watercolors. Of these works, fully 7,800 are of Native American subjects, including 3,200 portraits.
He was a historian of the West as well as a painter, and helped to preserve the record of a way of life that was changing.
