Charles Jacob Young (1880–1940)
Bavarian-born Charles Jacob Young immigrated to the United States ca. 1881. Exhibiting under his birth name, C Jac Jung, through at least 1919, Young studied at the National Academy of Design with Robert Henri, Charles Yardley Turner, and Edgar Melville Ward. Interested in both etching and painting, Young was a member of the Society of American Etchers and the Salmagundi Club. During his lifetime, Young’s work was exhibited at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, the Society of Independent Artists, the Society of American Etchers, and the Salmagundi Club. Young’s paintings and etchings can now be found in such prominent collections as the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the New York Public Library, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, the Library of Congress, the Smithsonian Institution, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Brooklyn Museum of Art.
