His set designs were a tremendous success. 'This will make you great' predicted the director, Alexander Sanin. 'If you had never been born, we would have needed to create you in order to dream up Prince Igor'. Valentin Serov was equally impressed by Prince Igor and wrote to congratulate Roerich on the success of his Paris set designs. A number of variations for the Polevetsian Camp are known, but the present work is a rare example of his design for Act IV, Yaroslavna's Lament. Acquired in Russia over a century ago, it has remained in the same family collection ever since. It was the only work by Roerich to have been included in the 1928 Brussels exhibition. The paper has been laid down on board, the corners of which have been cut round. The board is slightly bowed. The paper has become detached from the board in the bottom corners and is undulating in these areas. There is a tear across the signature in the bottom left corner, and a smaller tear in the bottom right corner. There is another small tear to the centre of the bottom edge. Cardboard strips have been glued to the edges in order to protect the surface from the glass. Areas in the foreground and the central tower show signs of minor rubbing, the pigments appear fresh otherwise. Held in a gold painted wooden frame behind glass. Unexamined out of frame.
