Details: This poster shows a painting of two cowboys riding into town at dusk. One is riding his horse on the wagon-tracked dirt road, while the other has dismounted from his horse in front of a house. There are two houses visible, both have their lights on in the windows and smoke coming from the chimneys.
A cowboy tends cattle and horses on cattle ranches. Some cowboys also work in and participate in rodeos. Cowboys are more often associated with (mostly fictitious) Indian-fighting than with their actual life of ranch work and cattle-tending. The cowboy became an archetypal symbol of American individualism. Cowboy can be used in a derogatory sense to describe someone who is violent, impulsive, or behaves in a hot-headed and rash manner.
This poster is usually printed with a thin white edge border.
