The artist; [?]; Virginia Snook, Billings, MT; present owner by gift

One of the reasons that Sharp preferred to leave Montana in the summers was that he felt it was just too green. This unidentified landscape, with its intense kelly green foreground, would suggest that at least the artist tried to accommodate the surge of spring verdure.
