A richly illustrated compendium of the artist’s work in the Bahamas

Celebrated for his meticulously finished watercolors, Stephen Scott Young is perhaps best known for his works painted in the Bahamas. This volume looks back over the artist’s 25-year career painting there, from his earliest depictions of Bahamian subjects to the present day, encompassing portraits, landscapes and still lifes, as well as his distinctive images of Bahamian children playing marbles in various island locales.



WILLIAM H. GERDTS is Professor Emeritus of Art History, City University of New York, and author of over 25 books on American art.
