The life of Nicholas Roerich's life, work and work was closely linked to the Russian Empire and the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917. By birth Roerich belonged to the upper middle class elite of the tsarist empire. He went through a typical career and studied law and art at the St.Petersburg University. This gave him two career paths: entering the civil service and the career of a Russian official, or a career within the artistic elite of the Tsarist empire. Roerich's work at the university caused a sensation and with the purchase of his first work by the influential Russian art collector Tretyakov, the course was set for his artistic career. The First World War and the Russian Revolution of 1917 changed Roerich's life planning considerably. Roerich emigrated to the United States in 1917 as a member of the bourgeois elite. Roerich found his artistic and spiritual home while traveling through India, Tibet and the Himalayas in the 1920s. However, he did not lose sight of the developments in his Russian homeland and also processed them artistically. In the sign of the times, his early work was characterized by paintings on Russian history, in which elements of Russian icon painting were also recorded and processed. Roerich used striking colored areas and a strong stylization of the people and objects depicted. Another focus of Roerichs was the collaboration with the modern Russian theater of the pre-revolutionary period. He designed stage sets and costumes for performances of the Simin Opera Theater, and his theater creations received international recognition far beyond Russia. His artistic work is divided into three life themes. On the one hand, dominating at the beginning, scenes from Russian history, alongside Buddhist-inspired motifs and landscapes of the Himalayas and topics of the modern Soviet Union. His paintings and drawings, which are characterized by a strong symbolism, show parallels to modern developments in graphics and design of the early Soviet period in the 1920s.

Roerich's reception of Buddhism led him to theosophical approaches in philosophy, whereby he certainly, and increasingly in the late phase, drifted into esotericism. A sign of this development was the close connection with Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, one of the most dazzling figures in esotericism and the secret sciences of the time. Roerich's initiatives also related to politics. As an influential philosopher and artist in his day, Roerich was committed to outlawing war. In 1935, an international agreement was signed under his leadership, also known as the Roerich Pact, which included the protection of national cultural assets during acts of war and which is considered a forerunner of the Hague war order. These activities earned Roerich a multiple nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize. © Meisterdrucke
