Young was born in Gettysburg and in the first decade of the twentieth century was considered to be one of Philadelphia’s greatest landscape painters. He studied with Thomas Anshutz and Robert Vonnoh at the Pennsylvania Academy. Their academic impressionism had a profound effect on Young.

In 1907, he visited Florence Griswold’s boarding house at Old Lyme and also visited the art colony at Cos Cob in Connecticut. A few years later, he visited Falls Village, Connecticut, where he came into contact with Willard Metcalf and Robert Reid.
