“Padrón” by James Walker (1818-1889), circa 1885. A man on horseback in colorful Spanish-style attire. He portrays a wealthy California ranch owner from the Spanish/Mexican period. By the mid-19th century, nostalgic and romanticize images of early California became the rage among Americans and Europeans. Walker, an English-born American painter who had lived in Mexico and California, painted for that market. He was fascinated by vaqueros (cowboys), who were vital to California’s early cattle-ranching culture (also see Roping Wild Horses and Charros at the Round-Up). By the time Walker painted these images, however, most of the great Spanish/Mexican ranches (among them, recognizable names such as Los Cerritos, San Pedro, Sausal Redondo, La Puente, Santa Anita, La Cañada, Boca de Santa Monica, Los Palos Verdes, Las Virgenes, Los Feliz, El Encino, Las Cienegas, La Brea, Los Alamitos, Topanga, and Tujunga) had either been purchased or wrested away in court from the original Mexican family owners. The ranches were then carved up for agriculture and development.
