In Montana Sharp lived in a log cabin; in New Mexico he lived in an adobe house and used an abandoned chapel for his studio. He probably painted this work in his Taos studio but posed his models wearing Plains Indian clothing. Sharp's Montana cabin has been moved to the museum's grounds and can be seen in the garden between the Whitney Gallery and the Cody Firearms Museum.
