A great patriot, valiant freedom fighter, astute lawyer, erudite scholar and educationist, renowned philosopher and leader of the masses, Lokmanya Tilak raised the stirring slogan "Freedom is my birthright and I will have it".  Widely acclaimed as the "Father of Indian Unrest", Tilak started the Home Rule League and championed the cause of freedom from alien rule.

The portrait, painted by Gopal Deuskar, was unveiled by the then Prime Minister of India, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru on 28 July 1956.

The portrait was donated by the Tilak Centenary Committee.
