DescriptionMEXICAN COWBOYS ON THE RANGE - EL IXTACCIHUAL - "VISTAS MEXICANAS" BY ABEL BRIQUET - ca. 1880-1889.
This rare and beautiful image captures the wide depth and scope of the untamed frontiers of Mexico, while also recording an exceptionally rare subject matter - that of the classic "Gaucho" cowboys. Abel Briquet was a French photographer living in Mexico during the 1880s who specialized in wide landscape photographs, often releasing his images in albums containing multiple images, which left most of the photographs un-mounted. This image size is that of a boudoir card, but is mounted on thin paper, which denotes the photographer and scene on the bottom portion. The image itself measures 7.5"x 5" tall with the paper mount extending below bringing the height to 6" overall. It is also signed "A.Biquet" in the negative to the bottom left. The photograph is in good condition with great tonality, but is lightly wrinkled throughout. Abel Briquet's albums are in several museum collections, however this image could not be found in a search of them. This image and subject matter are considered rare for this established and collectible photographer of Mexico.
