ABOUT NICHOLAS ROERICH

HIS BIRTH

Nicholas Roerich was born 1874 in St. Petersburg, Russia. His family had a country estate called “Isvara” about 55 miles to the southwest, where they spent a lot of time.

EARLY EXPLORATIONS

It is said that Nicholas loved to explore on the grounds of his estate, especially the kurgans, or mounds, where he found many old objects that stimulated his imagination and sense of adventure.

A YOUNG ARTIST EMERGES

Nicholas started drawing at a young age, inspired by his explorations and local Russian history that his found objects were revealing. He decided early on that the best way he could serve his country was through his art rather than as a soldier or as a lawyer, either of which he was expected to be as the oldest son. He did this painting of a boy when he was 10 years old.

BECOMING WISE TO ENERGY

Growing up in a land steeped in traditions, Nicholas heard magical stories from wise elders and went on to study texts of the wisdom of the ages. Through his own inner sense and his studies, he woke up to the world of energy.

BUILDING UNDERSTANDING THROUGH BEAUTY

Nicholas believed that beauty creates a bridge and culture for understanding and connection among all people. He used his art to be an ambassador of beauty.

A CHAMPION OF PEACE

Nicholas also believed in peace. He lived through World War I, and in an effort to help humanity never experience such a war again, he created a peace banner as a symbol of peace and unity. The banner was flown in many interesting places, including in space by Russian astronauts.

A PACT FOR PEACE IS SIGNED AT THE WHITE HOUSE

Nicholas’ efforts on behalf of peace were so effective, a “Peace Pact” that he created was signed by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and many US senators and other government officials from around the Americas (North, Central and South America and the Caribbean) at the White House in Washington, DC in 1935.

A HERO FOR ONE HUMANITY

Although it may seem that Nicholas lived long ago, his spirit and service live on as an energy artist and champion of beauty, peace and understanding though his art, which people today can still see and appreciate. His art can be seen in the United States at the Nicholas Roerich Museum in New York City (www.roerich.org), in Russia at the International Centre of the Roerichs (en.icr.su/museum/), and online if you do an image search for Nicholas Roerich.
