John Young, a self-taught painter who was one of Hawaii’s most successful artists, died Sunday Dec 14, 1997 at 88. Young gained national acclaim when Time magazine noted one of his seascapes at the 1936 National Exhibition of U.S. Art. The horse paintings for which he was famous were also acclaimed by national art critics as reminiscent of the Chinese Sung Dynasty. “John certainly was one of Hawaii’s best artists,” said George Ellis, director of the Honolulu Academy of Arts.  “He played a major role in the development of arts in Hawaii over the last 75 years.” Longtime friend Roger Bellinger said Young’s work was very personal to collectors. “Although he did similar themes—seascapes, horses and children—no two were ever alike,” Bellinger said. “He could never duplicate his work. It had different meanings to different people. It was personalized. It brought memories of the ocean or childhood.” Young also had an extensive art collection from around the world and covering all time periods. Some of Young’s Southeast Asian pieces are on exhibit at The John Young Gallery at the academy. “He had a wonderful eye for beauty,” Ellis said. Bellinger said Young died at The Queen’s Medical Center from a stroke he suffered after throwing a Christmas party Friday night for family and friends.  The party was held at the Hee Hing Restaurant, where he was surrounded by his paintings. Known to be a man of great energy, Young was already planning his next party right before he suffered the stroke, Bellinger said. Young is survived by a daughter, Deborah Li, who lives in Hawaii, nieces and nephews, and “thousands of friends,” Bellinger said. Young, who was born in Chinatown, opened a studio soon after graduating from McKinley High School in 1929. He traveled widely through Asia and Mexico, broadening his understanding of his two worlds—the East and West.       [SB 20/12/1997]
