राष्ट्रीय स्वतंत्रता आंदोलन के प्रति भारतीय कलाकारों का योगदान
जिस प्रकार मध्य युग में भारतीय शास्त्रीय कला की महान परंपरा मुस्लिम शासन के आगमन के बाद पराया समाप्त हो चुकी थी ठीक उसी प्रकार राजस्थानी मुगल और पहाड़ी चित्रकूट चित्रकला की भारतीय शास्त्रीय कला भी 1857 के गदर के बाद अंग्रेजी शासन के स्थापित होने पर उसी दशा को प्राप्त हुई
इस संकट की घड़ी में कुछ विलक्षण प्रतिभा संपन्न कलाकार एवं चित्रकार जैसे राजा रवि वर्मा अवनींद्र नाथ टैगोर गगनेंद्रनाथ नंदलाल बोस असित कुमार हालदार जितेंद्र मजूमदार अब्दुल रहमान चुगताई समरेंद्र नाथ गुप्त तथा कोलकाता स्कूल के प्राचार्य ई वी हैव ने कुशलतापूर्वक अपनी विचित्र कलाकृतियों के साथ सदा के लिए भारतीय कला का अधिपत्य उस जड़ मृतप्राय पश्चिमी चित्रकला पर स्थापित करने हेतु सामने आए जो पूरे भारतवर्ष में अंग्रेजों द्वारा स्थापित विद्यालयों जैसे मुंबई मद्रास वाला हॉल में बनाई जा रही थी इस महान कलाकार ने भारतीय राष्ट्रीय आंदोलन में आश्चर्यजनक नैतिक बढ़त प्रदान की जो 1905 में बंगाल विभाजन के खिलाफ शुरू हुई। इसी बीच अवनींद्र नाथ ने भारत माता का चित्रांकन किया।

Mahavir Tyagi, who was active in the Kisan (peasant) movement, remained a lifelong member of the Indian National Congress. Active especially in the Western region of the United Provinces, he was imprisoned by the British eleven times. In the course of the non-co-operation movement in 1921 Mahavir Tyagi was based in Bijnor district. He was tried, inter alia, for sedition under Section 124A of the Indian Penal Code at Bulandshahr in the United Provinces, later known as Uttar Pradesh.( See Young India, 13 October 1921, and United Provinces Legislative Council Debates, 5 November 1921). In the course of the trial he was assaulted at the behest of the British Magistrate, W.E.J.Dobbs. (See Independent, 9 October 1921, Leader, 10 October 1921 and Young India, 13 October 1921) In a series of commentaries on the incident, Mahatma Gandhi condemned the assault on Tyagi. (See Young India, 13, 20, 27 October 1921 and 10 November 1921; Collected Works of Mahatma Gandhi, Volume 21, 1966 (CWMG), pp 28

Usha Mehta who was a great leader and a great supporter of freedom movement of India .she played a vital role in non cooperation movement by handling secret radio .
And she use to motivate people by her radio programs to participate at a large rate in the freedom struggle .
