Our favorite Roerich websites around the world:

Its website provides the most complete on-line documentation of Nicholas Roerich’s life and work, as well as the Roerich family legacy. The International Roerich Memorial Trust: http://www.roerichtrust.org/ Nicholas lived out the last years of his life in the Himalayas near the village of Naggar, a village in the mountains overlooking the mythic Kullu Valley, India. The house was later converted into a museum, and acts as the center for the Memorial Trust. The Nicholas Roerich Museum,Moscow: http://www.icr.su/eng/museum/ Although Nicholas Roerich lived much of his life outside of Russia (he left in 1915, and only visited once thereafter, in 1925, en route to Mongolia), he is perhaps the most popular man of the 20th century in the minds of Russians today. His son Svetoslav, however, who lived in India until his death in 1993, visited several times beginning in the 1950s, and donated many paintings and other works that had belonged to his father. These form the basis of the museum’s collection.
