I discovered the works of Nicholas Roerich many years ago when ready some of the Theosophical books and immediately wanted to view the originals as I knew, from the description of his unique techniques, that no reproduction could ever capture the luminosity he imbued his work with. I did my research and found out about the museum in New York... More

There is no shortage of art on display in New York City, but the venues displaying said art can be daunting. This splendid little museum is tucked away in an Upper West Side townhouse and it could not be lovelier. The venue is quiet and civilized, the collection stunning. Take an hour from your travails and reward yourself with a... More

I never knew who this guy was, but I was staying nearby so popped in- fantastic works, amazing use of colour and drama. Am officially a Nicholas Roerich fan now! If you can, I would definitely add this to your itinerary for something a bit different and a bit less known...

If you're looking at this review, the chances are that you're familiar with the works of Nicholas Roerich. If not, you might like to throw his name at your favourite search engine. You may be amazed at the result: he was an amazingly prolific painter and designer (some estimates mention over 7,000 works) and his connections involve such diverse icons... More

Many people are unaware that this museum exists. I was aware of Nicholas Roerich as as person, but never knew he had a museum in NYC. It is a typical 3-store brownstone row-house that is easy to miss if there's no flag outside. There's an older lady can explain everything in English or in Russian. There's no fee, but there's...

The Nicholas Roerich Museum is a small, little known gem of a museum in Manhattan, on the upper west side. Being an almost lifelong NYC resident, I never knew it existed until a friend from Maine told me about it. Se we went- he was a brilliant painter who also was involved in set design for the Russian Ballet with... More

A few days before I went to NY I saw a picture of Nicholas Roerich's MOTHER OF THE WORLD, and this was my introduction to this fine artist. This beautiful museum is easy to reach by subway and walking, and the staff is very helpful. It is in an old brown stone, and the art is on all three floors.... More
