Harvey Otis Young, one of Colorado’s leading 19th century artists, is best known for his Rocky Mountain landscapes and mining scenes that he executed in oil and watercolor. In 1867 Young opened his first studio as a practicing artist in San Francisco “without money or any instruction”. Young wrote a letter to his brother on September 15, 1868 in which he stated that his works commanded “good prices…from the start”.
