Nicolai Ivanovich Fechin (1881-1955) was born in Kazan, Russia and his father taught him wood carving when he was a child. At the age of 13, he received a scholarship to the Kazan Art School and later studied art and painting in St. Petersburg and Paris. Nicolai Fechin was captivated by the Impressionist painting he was exposed to in Europe and he explored this style in addition to painting with a palette knife.
When he lived in Taos, New Mexico, Nicolai Fechin created many paintings and portraits of Indians, Mexicans and cowboys and these paintings are regarded as among his best work because of the exotic subject matter, high degree of modeling of the faces, and forceful, intense coloration. Besides being a master of painting, Nicolai Fechin was also an expert at drawing, sculpture, architecture, woodcarving and ceramics.
