Item description for Gauchos In Argentinian Photographic Postcards of the 20th Century (Coleccion Registro Grafico) by Carlos Masotta...
This charming, gift-worthy 6 x 6-inch paperback presents a wide selection of beautifully tinted photographic postcards of and by Argentine cowboys, or gauchos, in the early 1900s. Often reproduced with stamps, postmarks and handwriting perfectly preserved, these fascinating relics depict life on the Argentine prairie with documentary candor as well as romantic aplomb. Here we find many photographs of the gauchos with their horses, at their ranches, playing their guitars and courting their wives. Cows are quartered, houses are raised, rivers forged and duels fought. Collected by Carlos Masotta, the Buenos Aires anthropologist, documentarian and image-identity expert.
