Joseph Henry Sharp (September 27, 1859 August 29, 1953) was an American painter and a founding member of the Taos Society of Artists of which he is considered the "Spiritual Father". Sharp was one of the earliest European-American artists to visit Taos New Mexico which he saw in 1893 with artist John Hauser He painted American Indian portraits and cultural life, as well as Western landscapes.
President Theadore Rooservelt commissioned him to paint the portraits of 200 Native American warriors who survived the Battle of The Little Big Horn. While working on this project, Sharp lived on land of the Crow Agency Montana where he built Absarokee Hut in 1905. Boosted by his sale of 80 paintings to Phoebe Hearst, Sharp quit teaching and began to paint full-time. In 1909 he bought a former chapel in Taos to use as a studio, near the house of the artist E. Irving Couse In 1912 he and his wife moved to the area full-time.
He built a house with studio near the chapel. Both artists' homes and studios are part of the Joseph Henry Sharp Art Studio which is listed on the National register of historic places Sharp was born in Bridgeport Ohio on September 27, 1859 to Irish Immigrant parents. His father was a merchant by trade.
From childhood, Sharp was fascinated with anything to do with American Indians as a boy, Sharp nearly drowned in a swimming accident. He was pulled from the water and carried to his home by friends who thought he was dead.
His mother resuscitated him, but the incident permanently damaged his hearing, and he gradually became totally deaf. As a result, he had to learn to read lips and carried a writing pad with him. Sharp's father died when he was twelve years old. He studied briefly at the Mc Micken School of design then enrolled at the Cincinnati Art Academy In 1881, Sharp traveled to Europe, where he studied for a year at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp Belgium. In 1885 he traveled to Europe with John Hauser another Cincinnati artist, who studied with him at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Munich Sharp also studied at the Academy Julian in Paris and in the 1890s with Frank Duvenck in Italy.
In 1893, he made his second trip to the American West in the company of fellow Cincinnati artist John Hauser who had studied in Europe with him. They visited Taos New Mexico for the first time, Sharp on a commission from Harper's Weekly to illustrate Indian life at the Taos plueblo Sangre Christ Mountains and the local Indian Culture sparked his enthusiasm, which he shared with colleagues Ernest Blumenstein and Bert Phillips at academy Julian the next year. Sharp continued to teach in Cincinnati until 1902. During this period he also spent time in Montana where he camped at the battlefield of Little Big Horn, there he painted scenes of native life and portraits of members of the Plains tribes including the Crow , Sioux and Nez Perce 1900, these portraits were exhibited in Washing D.
The Smithonian Institution bought eleven of the portraits. Sharp came to the attention of President Theodore Roosevelt who took an interest in him and commissioned him to paint portraits of 200 Native American warriors who had survived the Battle of the Little Big Horn. To be able to stay in the area, Sharp apparently made a private arrangement with Samuel Reynolds, the US Indian Commission agent of the Crow Agency Montana and gained permission to build a log cabin on government land. Was near the confluence of two rivers.
Essentially the Crow Agency owned the cabin, which Sharp and his wife Addie built in 1905 with the help of local prison labor, arranged for and mostly supervised by Reynolds. Sharp called the cabin Absarokee Hut. He designed it as a one-room cabin, with a lean-to containing a bedroom and kitchen. The ridgepole of the cabin was high enough 16.5 ft. To allow a balcony at one end, where he hung animal hides and Indian blankets for privacy, to make the space behind it usable as a guest bedroom.
The Sharps furnished the cabin in an Arts and Crafts style and decorated it with their collection of Indian artifacts, which included Navajo Rugs a buffalo robe, shields, pottery, and baskets. Pheobe Hearst mother of William Randolf hearst bought 80 of Sharp's paintings of Native Americans.This enabled him to quit teaching, move into Absarokee Hut with Addie, and devote himself to painting. Hearst commissioned an additional 75 portraits to include members of every major Great Plains tribe. Hearst's entire collection of 155 of Sharp's paintings was eventually donated to the University of Berkely. The Sharps finally made a permanent move to Taos in 1912, where Addie died in 1913.
Responding to the new landscape and light of New Mexico, Sharp began to change some of his techniques. They worked as a sales cooperative to develop Taos internationally as a recognized artistic community. They continued the Society until 1927.
