Nicholas Roerich continues to arouse the interest of extensive scholarship, both adulatory and critical. Some give him the status of a demigod, while others relegate him to being a maverick, an adventurer with megalomaniacal delusions, a dabbler in spiritual ideas of unsubstantiated depth. Controversies aside, the question often asked is: what is the draw and pull of a man who was, in his final avatar, a painter of mountains? This anthology of essays on the artist seeks to answer just this. The contributors—scholars, disciples, practitioners—have looked at Roerich’s life from varying perspectives to explain his multi-faceted personality. Through these writings, one hopes to come to a holistic understanding of the man and his times.
