    “Gauchos in Malvinas”, part of Falklands' history is a collection of watercolors

    Marcelo Beccaceci, an expert in gaucho culture in Patagonia, is the author of the book and who collected the watercolors.

    “Gauchos in Malvinas” is the title of the book launched at the recent Buenos Aires Book show which is mainly a collection of water colors by William Dale, painted in 1852 when he spent time in the Falkland Islands. He was the son of John Pownall Dale, at the time General Manager of the Falkland Islands Company, and his paintings are considered a unique and only testimony of the gauchos in the Falklands.
