This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Gertrude M. Young was born October 4, 1862, in London, England, receiving her art education there and in Europe. After emigrating to America in 1887, she would later study at the Art Students League, in New York City, in 1897-1898. After initial years in New York City, she moved to Nebraska, where part of her family had homesteaded land in Valley County. From 1890-1894, she taught at Brownell Hall, an Omaha school for girls. Having returned to New York and study at the League, Young became a governess for the children of Theodore Roosevelt when he was governor of New York. Around 1906-1909, she also taught in Washington, DC, and at Brearly School, New York. In 1919 she was assistant curator of fine arts at the Brooklyn Museum, in New York.

Young became ill with tuberculosis, seeking remedy in a Georgia clinic, then, in 1924, in the dry climate of Tucson, Arizona, where she would live until her death six years later on March 13, 1930. She visited New Mexico, and spent the summer of 1928 in the East. Young was a charter member of the Palette and Brush Club, and Tucson Fine Arts Association. In March 1926, she exhibited The Festival at San Xavier; On the Navajo Reservation; The Rim and San Francisco Peaks from Near Prescott; Corner of Old Ranch Near Fort Lowell; and Afternoon on the Desert, Tucson in a three-woman exhibition at Tucson's Santa Rita Hotel.

In January and February 1927, she showed four Arizona landscapes at the Brooklyn Museum, in New York. Later in that year, Young exhibited Santa Fe Valley and Santa Fe Patio at the Museum of New Mexico, Santa Fe. In February, 1930, she exhibited paintings of San Xavier Mission and other Arizona subjects in the fourth annual show of the Palette and Brush Club, in what would be her last exhibition.

Young's earliest known work in the United States is that of the family's sod house near Arcadia, Nebraska. In the East, she frequently worked in Gloucester, Massachusetts, and painted many other New England landscapes. Two specific paintings include Gloucester Wharves and Summer Haze, Emerald Lake, Vermont.
