Exhibition Nicholas Roerich. In Search of Shambhala

The exhibition introduces the work of Nicholas Roerich (1874-1947), a world famous artist, writer, thinker, archaeologist and public figure, the initiator of the International Pact for the Protection of the Cultural Values of Humanity (Roerich's Pact). The exposition will feature about 80 paintings from the collection of the Russian Museum, as well as several graphic artworks.

      The exhibition will be based on the works of the "Heroic Frieze" series and the painting "Sinister". The latter will be presented for the first time in the original author's frame. The works created by Nicholas Roerich in India in the 1930s – 1940s also make a significant part of the exposition.

      The search for the origins and spiritual foundations of world culture was reflected in the Roerichs' art and literary heritage dedicated to the legendary Shambhala. The artist's Tibetan expeditions and the works that resulted from them make up the final, most significant section of the exhibition.

      Where: Benois Wing of the Russian Museum at the address 2, Canal Griboyedov Embankment, Saint Petersburg.

      When: from November 12, 2020, to February 8, 2021
