Elena Yakovleva, N.K. Roerich's Theater and Decorative Art, (Czech Republic, 1996), p. 70, ill.

LOT NOTES:

The composition of Secrets of the Walls is nearly devoid of human presence, with the two lone figures dwarfed by the stern edges of the fortress and the promise of mountainous wilderness beyond its gates. As observed by Liudmila Korotkina, nature, in [Roerich 's] mind, is inseparably linked with human activities (ref: Nicolay Roerich, (Leningdrad: Aurora, 1976), p. 6. The man-made landscape, in its pathetic fallacy, appears victorious in its ability to endure over generations of men passing by its walls. The bold combinations of burnt oranges and sparkling yellows contrast with the plum purples, showing the living fortress bathed in the midday sun.
