Stephen Scott Young


Stephen Scott Young, noted for his watercolors, was born in 1957. Young's interest in art was perhaps motivated by picture books given to him by his mother, depicting the works and styles of the 'Old Masters' Vermeer and Caravaggio. After graduating from high school, Young spent three years studying printmaking at the Ringling School of Art in Sarasota, Florida. He began to work in watercolor around 1976, with his style maturing in the 1980's. Young made his first visit to the Bahamas in the early 1980's, and was impressed by the crisp, bright light of the islands. It took him about five years to be satisfied with his rendering of such light onto paper. In 1985, he won first prize at an American Artist's national art competition for watercolor. The large size of his paintings lends added dimension and realism, and he often incorporates bright and clear colors. His work has at times been compared with the painting techniques of Winslow Homer, Andrew Wyeth, and Thomas Eakins. Young's and Homer's subject matter is similar; both utilizing the Bahamas and the native people. Collectors often hang Young's work beside those of the great realists of the 19th century. His watercolor painting, The Tournament, was sold at a 1998 Christie's auction, making him perhaps the youngest living artist to have paintings included at a Christie's auction. Stephen Scott Young's paintings are sought worldwide by museums and private collectors. He has won numerous national awards and his works have been exhibited in major museums and institutions, worldwide.

Sta even stil
Draai je niet om
En kijk ook niet vooruit
Tel de seconden
Niet de uren
Adem in en uit
