The Salt March, 1956

In the summer of 1951 Peter and his wife visited India for 18 months. During that time the artist painted a mural and studied the life of Gandhi, including the great salt march of 1929 that shattered for all time the wide-spread myth of British moral superiority. Defying the British troops, Gandhi’s non-violent followers attempted to enter the evaporation flats and were clubbed down by British police. Their astounding courage inspired all of India and the end of the British raj was only a matter of time.
