When we hear about the family estate, we make a good house somewhere in Russia. But why is this Russian place in America? His Creator — our artist, the history of personal life which was in the famous work of I. Ilf and E. Petrov "single-Storey America". It's been over a century since the birth of Nikolai Feshin, and we're just beginning to learn of our great compatriot. So, it all began on 8 December 1881 in Kazan, when the family of the owner of the iconostasis workshop of Ivan Feshin and daughters Kostroma construction contractor Praskovia Fine boy was born. Child called victorious name — Nicholas. He was destined to go through many of life's exams and become a famous painter, graphic, sculptor and teacher, the academician of painting. So it was destined that the first ordeal happened with Nicholas in early childhood. Imagine that at the age of four he contracted meningitis and for two weeks hovered between life and death. Doctors advised parents to hope for a miracle. Then my father persuaded the priests to bring out of the Cathedral of the Kazan Kremlin, the miraculous image Theotokos of Tikhvin. And here comes the real magic! After the procession three times round the bed of a dying man, and touched the icon of the body of the child, the mother noticed that he has signs of life. The Tikhvin icon of the Mother of God in oladepo: ru.wikipedia.org From early childhood, Nicholas loved spending time in his father's workshop and, of course, to draw. And painted usually at night, when everyone went to sleep and nobody bothered. By the way, according to the memoirs of Nikolai Ivanovich, his father was a humble, passionate worker who often suffered losses as bad counted the cost of their labor. The family lived very poorly. When Nicholas graduated from school, the administration demanded that the children come to the exam well-dressed, and the necessary money the family simply did not exist. Can be called magic, and it was at this time a boy gets his first order — a drawing of the iconostasis, and the hard earned money he called "heaven-sent". Despite the small income from art, his father wanted a son to become an artist. Desire miraculously came to life, and in 1895 he becomes a disciple first opened in Kazan art school.

Imagine that young Feshin all the time spent in school, and spent the night in an abandoned house, eating tea, bread and milk. Not accidentally one of the works of that period are called "homeless". Despite the hard life, Nicholas considered himself the luckiest, because he was completely absorbed in the art. Quietly runs a while and now 19-year-old Feshin already a student of the Academy of arts in St. Petersburg, and a year later comes true another dream — he became a pupil of Repin.

By the way, our young hero was fascinated by the art Nouveau and later became a portrait painter, master of portrait genre and the critical acclaim received for his drawings of Nudes that compare with the works of the old masters of the sixteenth century.
