The vaquero traditions of horsemanship, equipment, dress attire and language greatly influenced other working cowboys. As extraordinarily skilled horsemen, the vaqueros played a major role in the development and management of the ranching industry in Mexico, as well as the United States. | LLC: C M Russell/ (skull) [On back, TC with lines through it:] 18 1/2 x 21 1/4 [center:] 31 8 0 5 2 A 27(raised)/ # D/-----4----- | 75.72.jpg | 75.72.jpg | Mexicans | cowboys | Painting | gouache on paper | Russell, Charles M.
