John Edward Borien: Acclaimed Early 20th Century Western Artist and Ilustrator (1872-1945) Born in San Leandro, California, very much a Western cow town at the time, Borien developed his watercolor and illustration skills at an early age and when 19 enrolled at the San Francisco Art School after working on a ranch near Oakland. This formal training and his memories of his youth herding cattle allowed him to become a sensation with magazines that published his art. Through his work he became friends with Charles Russell, Will Rogers and Teddy Roosevelt, as well as other Western stars in the early days of silent films. He moved to New York City to further his education, and then permanently moved back to California in 1921 and built a home in Santa Barbara. Goldberg Auctions is pleased to offer this outstanding 9 x 12" ink on paper illustration, "Three Horseman on the Range," very representative of Borein's style. It was chosen to be the catalog cover art of Auction #206 in 1977 for Sotheby Parke Bernet (INCLUDED WITH THIS PIECE) on Western Art and Arms, and realized substantially more than its estimate. Framed to 15½ x 18", examined in frame and in excellent condition. Western Paintings and Illustrations Sotheby Parke Bernet, Los Angeles, January 19, 1977.
