I wanted to make a painting of an iconic cowboy hat, and chose this John Wayne hat from the movie Rio Bravo. My later research tells me this really is an icon, as it is the hat he first wore in Stagecoach, and nearly every Western movie he made from 1939 to 1959. The hat was so worn by the time they made Rio Bravo, it practically became a character in the movie!
