(Montana and the West series)
J. H. SHARP AMONG THE CROW INDIANS, 1902 ? 1910. Personal Memories of His Life and Friendships on the Crow Reservation in Montana by Carolyn Reynolds Riebeth. Volume Two MONTANA AND THE WEST SERIES. At the turn of the century, J. H. Sharp was commissioned to paint portraits of Indians and Indian life. Already a well-known artist in the country, and with a rising reputation, Sharp and his wife Addie moved to the Crow Agency in Montana. For eight years he lived with the northern Plains Indians and practiced his art within that setting. Carolyn Reynolds Riebeth and her family moved to the Crow Agency at the same time as Sharp. Her father, Major Samuel Guilford Reynolds, was appointed agent to the Crows in 1902, and for eight years the Reynolds and Sharps were close friends. The story Carolyn tells is notable for its accuracy and her love for the subject. Sharp?s Montana years included the study of the Crows, Cheyenne, Sioux and other tribes, as well as the Custer battle and other historical incidents in the area. The story of his relationship with friends, models, associates, and especially his wife Addie are explored in these reminiscences. Twelve full-color reproductions of Sharp?s Montana works, numerous pencil sketches from his notepad, and photos by Sharp and his friends.
