"Vache: A Symbol of Resilience and Connection Across Time" From the muddy German trench in Somme, northern France during World War 1 to Benny Goodman's captivating performance at the Capital Radio Jazz Festival in Knebworth, 1982, it has left its mark on various historical moments. This humble creature has transcended time and borders, capturing the imagination of artists and writers alike. In 2022, we celebrate Rosa Bonheur, a remarkable artist from the 19th century whose brushstrokes immortalized vaches with grace and precision. Her work stands as a testament to her talent and dedication. But vache's significance stretches beyond art; it holds cultural importance too. In ancient China during the Tsin period, a prayer was offered at the head of veal by an ethnic minority group - a practice preserved in the Archives of Foreign Missions' documents. Centuries earlier, a peasant led her cow and sheep to the fields in a pastoral scene captured delicately through pastel strokes in 1863. Meanwhile, Pierre Louis Larive Godefroy depicted transhumances -the departure of herds for mountainous regions- showcasing how vaches played an integral role in sustaining communities throughout history. The betail brand engraved by Y. Pranishnikoff illustrates Emile Daireaux's voyage to Plata in 1886. It serves as a reminder that even amidst technological advancements like ABC AUTOMOBILE K and ABC AUTOMOBILE T around 1900s Parisians still relied on these gentle creatures for their livelihoods. Not only have they been essential for human survival but also provided inspiration for idyllic landscapes where shepherds play bucolic scenes on flageolets or where animals like foxes and donkeys interact with wit and charm. Finally, Horse and Cow in a Meadow painted by an unknown artist captures their peaceful coexistence in 1885.
