Exposition "Creativity N. And. N. Roerich"

Exhibition May 18, 2018 − December 31, 2019
In the Roerich Museum in Moscow (branch State Museum of East) opened a unique exhibition“N.K. and S.N. Roerichs ".

The scale of the exhibition is amazing, because it presents almost all stages of the work of Nicholas Roerich - from the early “Russian architectural series” to the philosophical paintings of the last years of his life. The exhibits occupy nine rooms, each of which is devoted to a separate topic. Viewers will see such iconic paintings as “Build Rooks”, “Sacred Gift”, “Heavenly Light”, “Timur's Flowers”, “Chintamani”, “Armageddon”, “Buried Treasure”.

In addition to the paintings, and there are over 200 of them, visitors will also be able to see the art objects that the Roerich family collected.

The topic of preservation of cultural heritage occupies a special place in the exposition, since Nikolai Konstantinovich is one of the initiators of the signing of the treaty on the protection of cultural property during military operations in 1935. Now it is usually called the Roerich Pact.

The works of Svyatoslav Roerich, who lived and worked in India since 1931, are set aside in a separate room. The artist's paintings are diverse in subject matter - this includes portraits (“Portrait of Devika Rani”, “Pandit Moru Ram”), and Himalayan landscapes (“Kanchenjunga. Secret Hour”), and parables (“Sacred Flute”).

Unique in the exhibition is a memorial room, recreated by museum staff. The whole setting: pictures, photographs, personal belongings of family members, including the famous Tibetan cap, which Nikolai Konstantinovich liked to wear, an old table — recalls the great Roerich family.
