Notes: VARIOUS PROPERTIES

From 1925 to 1928 Nicholas Roerich led an expedition into Tibet in search of the legendary kingdom of 'Shambhala', from which he believed a new era of peace and enlightenment would emerge. During his travels, he visited a succession of dzongs, fortified Buddhist monasteries, which served as the religious and administrative centers of their communities.

Typically for Roerich, Dzong depicts an idealized structure. As Yevgeny Matochkin notes, 'Roerich's monasteries are not only amazing architectural pieces, but also a focus of fortitude and the embodiment of people's spiritual growth, which can be compared with the firmness of the rocks. The artist's strongholds are the abodes of righteous men and truth seekers, and the materialized symbols of the unity of the terrestrial and the heavenly.' (Y. Matochkin, Nicholas Roerich: Album and Catalogue, Samara, 2008, p. 447.)

We are grateful to Gvido Trepsa and The Roerich Museum, New York, for their assistance with the cataloguing of the present lot.
