John Sharp grew up in the Midwest and studied with regionalist painter Grant Wood. During the 1930s, he painted post office murals in Iowa for the Works Progress Administration, and one of his designs was featured on the cover of Collier’s magazine. Sharp eventually settled in Buck’s County, Pennsylvania, where he lived with his companion and artistic collaborator, Paul Crosthwaite, for nearly twenty years.
