Biography from Childs Gallery:
Dudley Vaill Talcott (1899-1986) had the great fortune to be born into an artistic and encouraging family and was free to pursue his artistic endeavors without being forced to construct a more commercial career from his talents. The artist's formal training includes a year at Yale University and several courses at the Académie de la Grande Chaumière in Paris.

In 1925, Talcott began traveling on and off for six years, most notably to Norway and Greenland. These travels inspired the artist to write and illustrate two related books, "Noravind" and "Report of the Company". After his travels, Talcott began to exhibit his work at the Museum of Modern Art in 1930, the Whitney Museum of American Art in 1938, the Worcester Museum of Art in 1941, and the 1932 Olympic International Competition and Exhibition, where his sculpture "The Wrestler" received an honorable mention.

Talcott received several important commissions throughout his career, including a group of bas relief panels for the 1939 New York World's Fair, colored windows constructed from fiberglass laminate displayed in seven Pennsylvania public schools, a sculpture honoring the 500th birthday of Copernicus erected in Philadelphia, and several commissions for private collections. After the 1939 World's Fair, Talcott began to move away from traditional styles and materials and began to move toward more modern styles and materials. He built a body of work in a style of industrial modernism that incorporated industrial design, cubism, streamlining, modernism, and what is now referred to as Art Deco.
