The painting “The Himalayas of the Pink Mountains” is the work of a mature master, the creator of heaven and mountain spaces. The mountain landscapes of Roerich, which depict the Himalayas, attract a special color, rich colors. The name of the painting itself contains the component of the meaning that the canvas is intended to realize, namely, the feeling of color, the feeling of tenderness of colors, when the harsh, unapproachable mountain peaks can soften the pink pale lilac rays of the sun.
The pink mountains are an unusual image, an image that reverses stereotypical images of mountains and
Leave for a time earthly, boring firmament and drown in pink mists, so resembling mountains, clouds, or even overflows of bright satin ribbons burning in the sun.
Roerich’s canvas “Himalayas. Pink Mountains” is a canvas – a symbol, a landscape-symbol. This pictorial work is three-dimensional, full of signs, semiotic and complex, as the work itself and the personality of the artist. Roerich’s paintings are paintings-reflections, paintings-prayers, paintings-symbols.
