Joseph Sharp is considered the father of the Taos School because he was the first of the Founders to visit the area in 1893. Trained in Cincinnati, OH, Paris and Munich, he painted in the Northwest, Montana, Hawaii and elsewhere. Evening on the Big Horn, dating from SharpÕs lengthy stay with the Crow, situates the Indians in a lush, picturesque scene as the day winds down. Scudding clouds add interest to the sunset and reflections on the silvered river shimmer and tremble.
