The author of Nichola Fechin, William Reese, and many articles for American Artist and SW Art has produced another masterpiece, chronicling the life and artwork of one of the most revered painter/teachers of the last century. Sergei Bongart bought the Fechin studio in Santa Monica’s Rustic Canyon, where he lived until his death in 1985. His legendary painting workshops were attended by the elite of artists currently working in America today, such as Del Gish, Ron Lukas, Don Sahli, Ron Riddick, Melinda Miles, Ned Mueller, Diane McClary, Peter Liashkov, and Sunny Apinchapong. When Bongart saw Mary Balcomb’s book on Nicholai Fechin, he said, “I want Mary to write one about me!” Sadly, Sergei did not live to see the book’s publication.
