About this product
- DescriptionThis quintessentially Indian version of a much loved children's classic features art from the Patua scroll tradition of Bengal, India. Carlo Collodi's original Italian text centres on a marionette who escapes his wooden fate and has many adventures, including a stint at sea in the stomach of a shark. This Indian version is abridged from Carol Della Chiesa's well-kwn English translation, and illustrated by award-winning scroll painting Swarna Chitrakar.
- Author BiographyCarlo Collodi Born Carlo Lorenzini, this 19th century Italian children's author was best-known by his pen name Carlo Collodi, under which he wrote the world-famous title 'The Adventures of Pinocchio'. It was originally published on a weekly basis in the children's newspaper Il Giornale per i Bambini and Carlo passed away before Pinocchio became well-known outside of Italy. Swarna Chitrakar Trained in the traditional Patua form of folk art by her father and uncle, Swarna hails from West Bengal in India. Despite marrying into a family that disapproved of women painting, Swarna - with support from her husband - went on to become an extremely successful artist. Patua is a folk form that combines performance, storytelling, and art. Traditionally artists were itinerant, travelling from village to village to sign from painted scrolls that they would unroll as they performed.
