Edward Borein (1872-1945) Studies from his Sketchbook, San Gabriel, Mexico
Ed Borein is absolutely our favorite Wild West artist and this is a total find. framed to display both sides of this page from his sketchbooks. We start with an elegant set of studies of chaps, that yield nothing in mastery to any artist and then, flipped, we discover a Mexican Cowboy in bright colors and some gorgeous pencil renderings of what is probably the cowboy's mount. Many consider his sketches his very best work. Ed was born in the West and lived the West and, oh boy, did he ever capture it. This is a treasure.
