Large-Scale Exhibition of Nicholas Roerich Opened in St. Petersburg

The Russian Museum presents a new large-scale exhibition of Nicholas Roerich’s works.

      The exposition has included about 300 masterpieces, not only from the Russian Museum collection, but also from the Tretyakov Gallery, the Peterhof Museum, Brodsky Museum, as well as private collections. Some of the paintings have never been exhibited before.

      Nicholas Roerich gave some of his works, mostly those of the 1930s -1940s, in will to the Russian Museum. Altogether the collection includes over 400 paintings by him.

      A separate hall is occupied with the series Mighty Frieze prepared for Bazhanov's House in St. Petersburg. Huge canvasses on epic subject matter were intended for interiors. They were rarely exhibited because of their enormous size.

      Visitors will also see sketches for stage productions. A considerable part of the exposition is dedicated to Tibetan and Himalaya landscapes. Though the Roerichs family lived in India from 1928, the artist created a few canvasses on Slavic heroes and warriors in the 1940s.
