Knight of the Morning belongs to the important early cycle series Eternal Knight and was painted in Finland in 1918. The painting Fairest City is the Enemy's Vexation, for which there is a sketch on the reverse of the offered lot, was painted in 1912. The painting used to be in the private Collection of Helena Roerich. Its present whereabouts are unknown.
Roerich was born in St. Petersburg. He studied at the Higher Arts College which was attached to the Imperial Academy, and then in the Paris studio of F. Cormon from 1900-1901. Roerich trained as an archaeologist and gave lectures at the Archaeological Institute in St. Petersburg. He was a member of the World of Art movement from 1910. Roerich became increasingly attracted to mysticism and theosophy and toured America between 1920-23 with his pictures, enjoying great success. Roerich travelled extensively, visiting India and Central Asia in 1923 and Altai, Mongolia and Tibet in 1926. He finally settled in the Kulu valley in India, where he directed an institute of Himalayan research, and where he died.
Inspired by simplicity of the remote past, he sought to resurrect a primeval landscape, a time when the world was still young, and full of holiness and heroism.
