My Recent Tour of the Nicholas Roerich Museum, New York City, in 144 Colour Plates

As it's the 100th anniversary of Stravinsky's 'Rite of Spring' (designed by N. Roerich), here is a virtual tour of  this fine museum dedicated to this mysterious and always interesting artist. I saw many of his paintings in India, but this is the best collection in one place.
George Gershwin grew up on the same Upper West Side street.
