Signed Portrait of Mahatma Gandhi

A portrait of Mohandas K. Gandhi, called Mahatma ("great-souled") by his followers. The photograph is signed by Gandhi with the legend "God is Truth." A lawyer by training, he left his law practice for politics, becoming the leader of the Indian National Congress and an outspoken proponent of Indian home rule. He was assassinated in 1948 by a Hindu extremist for his beliefs and his practice of nonviolent resistance.
