This is possibly the painting titled An Old Street in Taos on Fiesta Day that Sharp presented in his exhibition Indian Paintings and Western Landscapes and Sketches in Africa and Spain at Traxel's Art Galleries in Cincinnati in late 1923. Its measurements match that of the work offered. In Sharp's sales ledgers for 1928, he records selling a painting he called "Street & Apaches from door" to or through Bishop's Lodge for $200. (Sharp Papers) This may be that work though he listed it as slightly smaller, 16 x 20 inches.
