Students of Nicolai Fechin: Joseph Nordmann, Albert Londraville and Hal Reed
This is the overarching website that will include many artists. The 2017 Artist Almanac will primarily focus on three artists who were students in a class taught by the renown Russian-American Master, Nicolai Fechin, in the early to mid-1950’s. Joseph Nordmann, Albert Londraville and Hal Reed were all strongly influenced by their teacher and when he unexpectedly died in his sleep on October 5, 1955, these students were unprepared for the loss, but all went on to become recognized artists. These three artists became long-term friends and each paid tribute to their teacher in their own way over the following 50+ years. Their stories are remarkable.
