About the Painting
And We are Trying, sometimes called And We Labor (Russian: И мы трудимся) is a 1922 painting by Nicholas Roerich (Russian: Николай Рерих) from his "Sancta" Series.
The picture is set early in the morning and the sky is flooded with golden sunlight. Monks with buckets set out from a monastery high on a hillside and slowly make their way towards a river. The bright all-pervading light throughout the canvas gives a sense of harmony and peace born out from the hard work of the monks. Meanwhile, the rhythm of the meandering river, rounded curves of the hills, and inclined monk figures with their sickle-shaped rockers conveys a feeling of balance to the picture.
