This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A landscape painter of the Rocky Mountains and pastoral settings and an illustrator, Richard Tallant was born in Zanesville, Ohio. He went West as a young man, spending many years in Colorado mining camps and in Denver. As an artist, he was self taught, and in 1886 to 1887, was active in the Denver Art Club.

He married, and the couple settled in Devil's Gulch near Estes Park, Colorado where he was a long-time Justice of the Peace, which earned him the nickname "Judge Tallant."

He traveled throughout the West, painting the Grand Canyon, the Tetons, Colorado Rockies, and Mount Hood, and in 1887, he depicted the Pueblo Indians of New Mexico. Many of reproductions of his work appeared in periodicals and calendars, especially his views of Long's Peak. Many of his paintings were commissioned by F.O. Stanley, owner of the famous Stanley Hotel.

His method was to complete most of his canvases in nature "en plein air," often in watercolor, and add the finishing touches in the studio.

Biography from Springville Museum of Art:
Richard H. Tallant was an itinerant artist from Ohio.  On his way to developing major artistic reputation in Colorado, Tallant sojourned in the Salt Lake Valley for at least two years, sketching and painting.

He kept studio space at 44 North Second West Street during the first couple of years of the 1890s. Though his home is said to have been in Estes Park, Colorado, he is known to have been in Utah in 1889 through 1891.

He was a landscape painter, painted a view of the Great Salt Lake in 1890, and also worked in Zion Park.
