TASCHEN: The Fairy Tales of Hans Christian Andersen

Andersen was one of my favorite children’s writers growing up. Unlike Brother’s Grim, he didn’t collect folktales, but brought them straight out of the well of his endless imagination. Andersen often fell in love with unattainable women and many of his stories are interpreted as references. Troubled and lonely Andersen found an outlet for his dreams and fantasies in creative writing.

Art Fascination with Harlequin

Harlequin is the comic servant from the italian Commedia dell’arte (Comedy of improvisation). The Harlequin is characterized by his chequered costume. While generally depicted as stupid and gluttonous, he was very nimble and performed the sort of acrobatics the audience expected to see. He also is known to try to win any given lady for himself by interrupting or ridiculing his competitor.

He eventually became something more of a romantic hero around the 18th century, when his popularity provoked the it’s own theatrical form Harlequinade.
