Edward Borein was born in San Lorado California on Oct. 21 , 1872. He went on to study at The School of Design in San Francisco as well as The Art Student League of New York .Edward Borein became one of the most respected artists for his accurate depiction of the west & it's people . He was a cowboy at Jesus Maria Rancho of Sant Barbara where his life experiences as a working cowboy became the subject of his Art. Borein's associates included Charles Russell , Maynard Dixon and Olaf Seltzer .Borein lived his artistic life & the people he drew though existed in his imagination were well founded in reality.Edward Borein worked hard to depict work and life on ranches of California & many other locations with great detail and always remembering the environment which at times was hostile.His ink drawings, watercolors, and etchings represent western life in great detail & are found in many important collections. Upon leaving Rancho Jesus Maria, Borein received a letter of commendation and reference from the owner, William R. Sloan, which was a significant thing at the time. In the letter, Sloan describes Borein as “a young man of honest, sober, and industrious habits, and a competent Vaquero.” For the next few years Borein traveled throughout California and Mexico putting his status as a certified vaquero to good use. In 1901 Borein met up with a colleague, Maynard Dixon, and the two embarked on a long sketching journey up through Canada and back to California. Ever the wanderer, Borein returned to Mexico to work on Phoebe Hearst’s massive cattle ranch in 1903, returning a year later to devote himself finally and fully to art.
