Nicolai Fechin House (Taos Art Museum)

North Region

Constructed 1940

Nicolai Fechin was a supremely talented Russian artist who emigrated to the United States in the early Twentieth Century and ultimately settled in Taos about 1920. Fechin was trained in Russian folk arts and used his skills to create a unique fusion with the New Mexico folk arts tradition including architecture and furniture. Fechin also practiced as a painter, producing many remarkable portraits and landscapes during his lifetime. The Fechin house today is open as a house museum showcasing the masters integrated expressions and is operated by the Taos Art Museum, offering curated shows, tours and a gift shop.
