Egor Ivanov. Short live of culture destroyers 26.01.2018 Egor Ivanov. Short live of culture destroyers

The present situation with the Non-Governmental Museum created by the ICR under the leadership of the authorized representative of Svetoslav Roerich Lyudmila Shaposhnikova can rightfully be called a kind of revenge of the officials to Svetoslav Roerich, who almost thirty years ago expressed an open distrust to the state-bureaucratic system of culture and therefore was steadfast in making in Moscow a Non-Governmental Museum on the basis of the Roerich family heritage, which included hundreds of Nicholas and Svetoslav Roerich paintings, rare collections and a unique family archive with priceless philosophy manuscripts of Helena Roerich.

The authorities make up laws in order to interpret them in their own favor. If things do not work out in a good way, "people in black" come and do lawlessness in the "interests of the state." The capture of the Non-Governmental Nicholas Roerich Museum is a vivid and very sad example of this.

27.11.2007 Exhibition of Aleksey Armand Secrets of the Beauty
12

On November 20, 2007, the Nicholas Roerich Museum mounted the Secrets of the Beauty exhibition of Aleksey Armand’s works. The exhibition featured about 100 works of the artist: water-color and composite technique landscapes, paintings of philosophic character. Aleksey Armand is Doctor of Geography, an explorer, and pedagogue. Painting is not a hobby for him. It is a natural part of his scientific activities, both research and pedagogical. The artist admits that he was forced to choose water-color just because to long expeditions to the distant corners of the Earth one has to take with oneself the paints that take up little space in one’s backpack. However, this involuntary choice has only benefited the creative life of Aleksey Armand. His water-color landscapes are highly professional, his brushstroke is expressive, colors are clear and bright. Most of his sketches are just as complete as small paintings. Apart from their esthetic value they are also educational: by far much better than any photo, they display the life of Nature in places that no man has laid his hands on yet. Doctor of Geography Aleksey Armand uses his sketches as illustrative supporting material in his lectures that he delivers to very different audiences: school pupils at Natural Study lessons, university students in Geography classes, and to teachers attending refresher courses.

The opening ceremony of the Discover Mexico! exhibition took place at the Nicholas Roerich Museum on November 1, 2007. The magic melody of Вessamo Mucho performed by the violinist Sofia Prittchina and the guitar player Kim Zoloev invited the visitors of the exhibition to plunge into the atmosphere of the far away land of Mexico. In her opening speech, Ludmila Shaposhnikova, Director of the museum, addressed the audience: “You will see the real beauty – the beauty of bright colors, elegant ceramic forms, wonderful historical copies of museum exhibits.” Mexico is a unique and mysterious country that has not yet been fully explored. Ludmila Shaposhnikova noted that Mexico used to be the land of the Mayas and the Aztecs whose ancient cultures were traced in the contemporary life of the country. It happens because the transition of one culture into another is accomplished with the preservation of the original roots. We all know from history that the last civilization of the Aztecs fell under the pressure of the Spanish conquista. Strangers – the Spaniards with their own culture – invaded those lands. There was much drama, but centuries have passed and now in Mexico we see a synthesis of the ancient civilizations and Hispanic culture. And this synthesis is accompanied by a marvelous beauty in art.
