READY FOR FRAMING! This is a mint “New Yorker” cover by American Illustrator Tallon. It shows a green living room from the magazine’s October 12, 1981 issue.

Robert Tallon was born in 1932 in Astoria, Queens. At the age of 12 he was selected for an exclusive scholarship with the Metropolitan Opera. However, when bulbar polio paralyzed his throat, Tallon turned to art during convalescence. After training briefly at the School of Visual Arts, he found work with a New York advertising agency, but continued to freelance.

His artwork became the talk of the town; illustrations for such major accounts as Hanes, American Express and Playboy further enhanced his reputation. He also enjoyed success as a writer. Two early books for adults were followed by16 children’s books.

But it was Tallon’s artwork for “New Yorker” that made him a household name. His first cover “The Boy with the Horn” that ran December 9, 1974 was followed by 32 more depicting everyday scenes from city life.
