Celebrated for his meticulously finished watercolors, Stephen Scott Young (b. 1957) is perhaps best known for his works painted in the Bahamas. This richly illustrated volume looks back over the artist’s twenty-five year career painting there, from his earliest island scenes to some of his most recent works, encompassing portraits, landscapes and still lifes, as well as his distinctive images of Bahamian children playing marbles. Over 160 of Young’s paintings, silverpoints, and etchings are reproduced, almost all illustrated in color.

As the first in-depth book examining a specific aspect of the artist’s career, this volume should appeal to collectors and scholars alike, and will be a welcome addition to museum and academic art libraries.
