Fechin's style is colorful, bold, and a mixture of the abstract and more realistic. I loved his "Portrait of a Young Woman"--such intelligence and boldness of face. With her chin resting on her hand, she meets the eyes of the viewer with a touch of a smile and directness of gaze.
She looks like the type of person I would love to have afternoon tea with--a person who enjoys the finer things of life and probably has something both substantial and witty to share.
The exhibit is running from February 9, 2013 to May 19, 2013. The Frye is a small gemstone of a museum. If you can find the time, the trip is worth it.
The Taos Art Museum in Taos, New Mexico is another place to find out more about Fechin and his works.
