Fechin was a Russian painter but also a sculpter and woodworker. The woodwork in the house is worth seeing. Very nice museum. For $25 you can purchase admission to 5 museums.

We arrived expecting to see more art on display. When we toured there was only works by Fechin. The house is interesting, but it does not take long to wander through a dozen or so rooms and voila! You are finished. There were no docents, or audio tour, so you will have to read the signs ...

Make the trip to Taos, some of his most iconic canvases have been assembled for your viewing -- Alexandra ("Tinka") on the Volga, Eya (ee' ya) in Peasant Blouse, features Fechin's young daughter seated and gazing at the artist, Alexandra in Coral Beads, captures Tinka...

The home is amazing with the carved furniture and other features. The art on display was truly beautiful. The grounds are neatly manicured. The gift shop features many lovely items. We will certainly return to view other works of art!

Nicolai Fetchin managed to get out of Russia in the early 1900s. He was an accomplished artist in Russia and then in the U.S., and found his way to Taos. His art--he painted and sketched mostly portraits--many of his wife and daughter--is very unique. He restored and enlarged a house in Taos that is mostly carved trimmings and furniture. The... More

We saw the home while walking around and were struck by the appearance. Came back to visit the next day. As several others have noted, all art currently on display is Fechin. Nice paintings, many of his daughter. For me, the amazing thing is all of the woodwork which Fechin did- "painted by day and carved by night". The doors,... More

D.H.Lawrence said it best: "...Taos changed me forever... something stood still in my soul..." Fechin, along with lengthy list of art, music and letters luminaries - O'Keeffe, Blumenschein, Gaspard, Baumann, Cather, Adams, Curtis, Marin, LaFarge, Austin, Hartley, Houser, Brett, Stokowski, Byner, Wilder, Stravinsky, Gorman (and on and on). Fechin was perhaps the greatest of the artists. Until I viewed the... More
