Fechin: The Builder
By Eya Fechin
with Moses Porter
Nicolai Fechin was an artist of two continents. Half of his career was spent in Russia (1881-1923), where his education, training and warmest acclaim took place. The latter part of his life and artistic development took place in America (1923-1955).
This book focuses on the incredible architecture, design, woodcarving & beauty of the house that Fechin built in Taos, NM in the 1920’s.
He considered Taos as his American home and it is there that a Russian house evolved from the New Mexico mud. It is that house which is celebrated in this book.
