A major monograph on this Russian painter who emigrated to America living in New York, Taos, New Mexico, and California. Foreword by his daughter Eya Fechin Branham.
"Fechin was known as the living old master ... an artist's artist. His talents in so many diverse disciplines were unique indeed - a master of painting, drawing, sculpture, architecture, woodcarving & ceramics.
"Nicolai Fechin died in 1955, but his sensitive and dramatic portraits in charcoal and oils are a legacy which stirs the emotions and inspires visions. The insight and warmth he transferred from life to canvas are in this classic volume [which] covers Fechin's life from Russia in 1881 to America in 1955."
