| Roerich, Nicholas Biography
Original Russian Nikolay Konstantinovich Ryorikh. Educated at the St. Petersburg Academy of Fine Arts, he was not only a scenic designer but also an archaeologist and landscape painter. Nicholas Roerich's oil paintings evidence an intense feeling for the epic dimensions and mystery of nature, particularly prehistoric nature.
In 1920 he emigrated to the United States, where he fashioned a reputation as a painter, seer, guru, and peacenik, especially among the well-to-do, who provided him funds and even built him museums, one of which still stands in New York City.
