Joseph Henry Sharp (9/27/1859—8/29/1953) was known as the "Father of the Taos Art Colony." A great traveler, he settled permanently in Taos, New Mexico. Welcomed as a friend, he portrayed the life, rituals, and dress of the native Western Indians in glowing, colorful, authentic detail. He did etchings, drawings, watercolors, and oil paintings, and photographs. There's a chapter on him in Deborah Meranski Sonnenstrahl's "Deaf Artists in America," and an entry on him in Harry G. Lang and Bonnie Meath-Lang's "Deaf Persons in the Arts and Sciences: a Biographical Dictionary." I'd like to obtain a photo (ideally, several photos) and more information on him.
