Nicholas Konstantinovich Roerich

Born in Russia, Nicholas Roerich (1874–1947) began a journey of spiritual exploration in the Himalayas before settling in India. A prolific painter, he was also a well-known set designer for ballets and operas, an archaeologist, activist, writer, and philosopher. His Himalayan landscapes are grand in scope and color yet contemplative and mindful of the role of humans. Believing that beauty and knowledge were crucial ingredients of peace, he proposed an international treaty for preserving cultural treasures, and the Roerich Pact was signed by the nations of the Pan-American Union in 1935. Roerich Societies exist around the world, and his cultural legacy is evident in international museums devoted to his art and teachings, among them the Nicholas Roerich Museum in New York.
