Indian Genre Scene by Joseph Henry Sharp, Watercolor on Paper

Joseph Henry Sharp (American, 1859-1953), signed l.l.; 11.25 x 8.5 in.
Prior to Sharp's settlement in the Taos Art Colony and also prior to his portrait work in Montana, he worked extensively in Cincinnati, executing portraits of the Taft family and other prominent citizens. He also executed naive Indian subjects such as this. This example is almost certainly from his student days before 1893.
