This painting is listed in the Gilcrease retrospective catalogue as Crow Camp, Montana. A work by that title was exhibited at the Hotel Gibson in a show titled Indian Paintings in 1919. However, Sharp wrote to Joseph Butler in December 1919 that he would not go to Montana that winter, so this work must have been painted the autumn before, or earlier.
