A Talpazan Tile

December 14th, 2015 · 3 Comments

I posted earlier about the death of Ionel Talpazan, devoted painter of UFOs. I couldn’t find a small ceramic tile I once bought from him, but I just came across it, tucked away in a bookcase. Here it is, along with the back, showing the price and his signature. It’s small, only 4 1/4 inches square.

    Thank you for introducing me to Talpazan years ago, Doug. My visit to his Harlem apartment is one of my most cherished NY memories.

    I bought this tile from him on my one visit to that apartment. He was one of a kind.
