Edward Borein (1872 - 1945) grew up in the towns of San Leandro and Oakland, along the California cattle trails. His artistic inclinations became evident almost immediately; he was sketching at the tender age of five, before most children can write. The subjects available to him during his childhood--vaqueros, longhorn cattle, horses--determined his lifelong interests. Borein was encouraged by his family to pursue art studies but his formal education lasted just one month before he decided to give it up to become a cowboy.
