Other towns have views. Taos has vision. For a thousand years, people have been inspired by its timeless and unconventional allure. The Taos Art Museum at Fechin House is pleased to present this exhibition exploring the vision of an artist who arrived here from a distant place and was changed forever...
Nicolai Fechin: A Vision of Home
The concept of “home” has a special importance for people who have lost not just their home but their homeland and have to start all over again in a new place, among new people. The special exhibition “Nicolai Fechin: A Vision of Home” upstairs at the Taos Art Museum at Fechin House, explores both the physical home the artist fashioned for his family after fleeing the devastation of the Russian Revolution and civil wars, and the home he found in his art—the only home he could take with him.
