Karuizawa Museum of Picture Book Art: Behind the Scenes of the Autumn/Winter Exhibition “Grimm’s Fairy Tales

True literature arises from life and returns to life.”
The Hidden Intent behind the Formation of “The Grimm’s Fairy Tales

Grimm’s Fairy Tales” was published in 1812. Many of the tales in the book were passed down from generation to generation. The brothers interviewed and collected the stories from the narrators, and the tales, which had no form, have survived in written form to this day.
In the course of revising the book to its final seventh edition, the brothers added or deleted stories and rewrote expressions.
Along with the illustrations, this exhibition introduces the history and achievements of the Brothers Grimm, as well as their intentions behind this collection of fairy tales.
