Sharp & Michelin was the lithography firm of William Sharp (1803–75) and Francis Michelin at 17 Tremont Row, Boston. Both Michelin and Sharp had worked at the London-based lithography firm of Charles Hullmandel before emigrating to America around 1839. Sharp & Michelin was founded the following year, but was shortlived, lasting from 1840–41. The work produced by Sharp & Michelin is regarded as interesting and highly accomplished, a result of William Sharp's determination to establish himself in Boston.
