About

Signed Lower Right Period Newcomb Macklin Frame Charles Morris Young (1869-1964) Born in Gettysburg, Charles Morris Young lived most of his life in Radnor, Pennsylvania. He was recognized as a pioneer in creating American Impressionist landscapes, especially snow scenes of which he painted outdoors. Young is also known for his golfing, equestrian, and hunting scenes. He studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts with Thomas Eakins, Robert Vonnoh and Thomas Anschutz. In 1897, Young set off to Paris with his wife, for continued art studies at the Academie Colarossi. Living for a time in Giverny, he became acquainted with Claude Monet, recalling how in moments of frustration Monet would throw paintings into his lily pond, to be fished out later by members of his family. Young would also get to know Whistler, Mary Cassatt, John Singer Sargent, Matisse and Gertrude Stein. Young was an Associate of the National Academy of Design and a member of .the Philadelphia Art Club. He remained remarkably active in his later years still exhibiting at the National Academy of Design at eighty seven years old. At age ninety, he was still painting and playing 18 holes of golf. In 1962, at age ninety three, Young tragically watched many of his best paintings go up in flames during a destructive house fire. As a result, he simply began to recreate them. Shortly before his death at 95, Young gleefully stated, “Titian couldn't paint after 91. Not one of my contemporaries is still producing." He has one of the longest exhibition records in the history of the Pennsylvania Academy spanning more than fifty years(1891-92,1893 award, 1894 prize, 1895-1920,1921 gold medal, 1922-24, 1925 prize, 1926-44). He also exhibited at the National Academy of Design, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Boston Art Club, the St. Louis Exposition (1904 silver medal), the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo (1901 award), the Philadelphia Art Club (1908 gold medal), the Carnegie Institute (1910 prize), the Buenos Aires Exposition, the Corcoran Gallery biennials, and the Panama-Pacific Exposition in San Francisco(1915 gold medal). His work is in the permanent collections of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, the Reading Museum, the Allentown Art Museum and the Sandhurst Military Academy in England Sources: New Hope for American Art by James M.
