Remembrance of Paintings Past

Paintings in Proust


Thames & Hudson 360pp £25 order from our bookshop

Paintings in Proust is a book with a simple but fruitful purpose: to list, illustrate and comment on all the pictures referred to in A la recherche du temps perdu. Given the length and sophistication of the novel and the extent of its author’s interest in painting, that is no small task, but Eric Karpeles makes an excellent job of it.
