Interesting museum and gallery, well worth a visit. Some stylised Himalayan landscapes and more regarding Roerich’s international views more »
A small gem in the Upper West Side! Friendly, knowledgeable staff can share details about spiritual and Asian influences on his paintings as well as his history. more »
An amazing little/known spot of bliss in Manhattan. A place for which the word transcendent is meant.
One of the best collection of paintings depicting mighty Himalayas done by Roerich are exhibited here in a very homely place. Though not very big in size the gallery is full of mesmerizing works by the renowned artist. Art lovers, Himalaya lovers and mysticism lovers do not miss this tiny little collection in a miss if you wink place. Timings are narrow and entry is by voluntary donation. I am glad i got an opportunity to see this museum.
