About the work
Very fine impression with exceptionally rich color and line quality; condition is excellent. Housed in a period frame, glazed. Referenced as plate #76 in Galvin (1971). Nice/clean pencil-signature lower right. An uncommon work from Borein’s bucking horse series.
It is in his portrayal of a Western man on a horse, as a part of man’s ability to live his own particular way of life, in his chosen but often hostile environment, that he is truly superb. And, if a choice must be made between his drawing of this particular type of man and his drawing of that man’s horse, it is in the drawing of horses, in all their many modes and moods, that Borein will ever demand a presence in any collection that claims to represent the great animal artists not of America alone but the world — John Galvin
About the artist…
A native Californian, Edward Borein was born at San Leandro, not far from San Francisco, on October 21, 1873. He began to work as a cowboy at the age of seventeen, and sold his first drawing when he was twenty-one. From that time onwards, irrespective of location as he travelled all over the South-Western United States and as far south as Guatemala, he was an artist. He remained ever devoted to the practice of his professional skill, and at the same time kept up his interest in cowboy life, to the very end.
