In Search of Lost Time by Marcel Proust is one of the most profoundly visual works in Western literature, a novel devoted to the description of people, their manners and their arts. This book celebrates the close relationship between the visual and literary arts in Proust's masterpiece. Eric Karpeles has identified and located all of the paintings to which Proust makes exact reference, and over 200 are reproduced here in full colour. With accompanying texts drawn from the Moncrieff/Kilmartin/Enright translation of In Search of Lost Time, this book is an essential addition to the libraries of Proustians worldwide and a handsome volume in its own right.
