Following My Paint Brush, Hardback Book

Following My Paint Brush Hardback

Illustrated by Dulari Devi


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, whose occupation is river-fishing.

Used to a life of hard and relentless labour, she discovered painting while working in an artist's house.

She learned by doing, and very soon came to adapt artistic rules and conventions to her own expressive needs.

Following My Paint Brush narrates Dulari's momentous journey from a worker who knew no rest to an artist willing to go where her imagination leads her.

In this - Dulari's first book - Gita Wolf has recorded the story that was relayed to her orally, while Dulari has told the visual story through her art.
