"All true art is simple and natural" ~ MK Gandhi
This gallery is dedicated to 8 paintings depicting Gandhi in various poses during various activities (marching; spinning cloth; meditating etc). These portraits were painted in the 1960’s by Chandulal Shah and Hiralal Khatri who were textile merchants as well as accomplished artists. Subsequently these painting were generously donated to the Ashram where they presently stand in our painting gallery.
This gallery also contains a remarkable portrait of Gandhi created by Shri Rajkishore Kapoor. What makes this work unique is that it is composed of ground nut/peanut shells that were heated at varying temperatures to create a detail and accurate rendition of Gandhi.
