If you are not familiar with the art of Nicholas Fechin, you need to be! Before immigrating to Taos, NM, Fechin was already known as the Russian Michaelangelo. His paintings are awe inspiring and his woodwork in his home, now the museum is equally impressive. Do not miss this experience.

This lovely museum in "downtown" Taos has not only a fabulous collection of iconic Taos artists but is housed in the wonderful Fechin House, home of Russian artist--a significant and beaultiful structure. Lots of opportunities to view the collection, special exhibits and special events as well as enjoying the lovely grounds and gardens.

Here is a house that is filled with paintings of people and places of and around Taos, and a little Russian flair as Fechin was of Russian decent. His father had been a master wood carver. So when Fechin came to Taos to paint, then choose to settle there he cared the woodwork in his home. It is beautiful. It... More

A wonderful small collection that gives you a good sense of the history of Taos's art colony status. The house itself is a work of art in the classic adobe style. Check it out.

Small but great museum. There are better museums in town if you are short on time. If you are spending 3 days or more this place can be added to you list.

Be sure to visit the Taos Art Museum and plan to spend at least an hour to experience an essential part of New Mexico art and artists. The Museum is located in the home of Nicolai Fechin on the Paseo del Pueblo Norte providing an excellent environment to learn about the early Taos artist community. The Museum is outstanding for...

First the house = lovely with fine architectural details, especially the wood work (carved by Fetchin himself). Nice art = local artists' works on display along with Fetchin's collection. We enjoyed the video about Fetching, his family, and building the house. Wished we could have enjoyed the garden too, but there was snow on the ground.

The reason we travel is to learn new things. I had never heard of Nicolai Fechin, and now I know so much about his life and his skill as a woodcarver. He built their home next to his studio and carved every little detail in the house himself. It was gorgeous! His art was good, not great, but the house... More
