'La Cabane Gardianne', lithograph (1974), by Yves Brayer (1907 - 1990). Brayer loved the Camargue region of France and painted it widely. The Carmargue is a vast, swampy delta near Arles, very exotic, with tall marsh grasses where pink flamingos, black bulls and white horses roam freely. This image depicts a cowboy on horseback riding by the small cabana in the painting. Here, cowboys — called gardians — ride white horses on the beaches and herd black cattle, while flamingos wade in the shallow marshy waters. Dating back to the early 16th century, the gardians are a professional order of cowboys who protect and care for the herds of horses and black bulls that roam around the region. They're one of the oldest groups of cowboys in the world and their ancestors were probably the first American cowboys. Back in the 1600s, these gardians sailed to New Orleans, where they rode through the bayous of Louisiana and Texas, rounding up the cattle. This lithograph is framed with glass and is in good vintage condition
