Dulari Devi, Gita Wolf

Following My Paint Brush is the story of Dulari Devi, a domestic helper who went on to become an artist in the Mithila style of folk painting from Bihar, eastern India. Dulari is from a community of fisherfolk, and she discovered painting while working as a domestic labourer in an artist’s house. She learned by doing, and has since been acknowledged as a reputed artist. Through a series of images, done in the exquisite Mithila style, Dulari recalls important moments from her life. The sheer beauty of these pictures belies the stark and simple heroism of her tale. Gita Wolf draws on Dulari’s oral accounts of her life to tell a poignant yet quietly hopeful story for young readers.
