John Edward Borein
Modern (19th century-1945) Painting
(San Leandro, CA, October 21, 1872 - March 19, 1945, Santa Barbara, CA)

What sets Edward Borein (1872-1945) apart from other Western artists is the fact that he never took artist's license to enhance or over-dramatize his pictures. Borein recorded what he saw. Important to him was recording accurately every detail of the horses, cattle, and gear. In his own words, "I will leave only an accurate history of the West, nothing else but that. If anything isn't authentic or just right, I won't put it in any of my work."
