Synopsis:

A captivating, colorful examination of the ways in which Proust incorporated artists and the visual arts in his work.

A la recherche du temps perdu by Marcel Proust is one of the most profoundly visual works in Western literature. Not only are there frequent references to specific works of art, notably during the narrator's visits to Venice and in his evaluations of the style of the imaginary painter Elstir, but certain characters are also evoked by comparison to particular paintings. Bloch's appearance as a boy is likened to the portrait of Mohammed II by Gentile Bellini; Odette de Crécy strikes Swann by her resemblance to a figure in a Botticelli fresco. Even the lesser figure of a certain Mme. Blattin becomes the subject of Proustian mischief by being described as "exactly the portrait of Savonarola by Fra Bartolomeo." Eric Karpeles has identified and located the many paintings to which Proust makes reference; in other cases, where only a painter's name is mentioned to indicate a certain style or appearance, Karpeles has chosen a representative work to illustrate the impression that Proust sought to evoke.

With some 200 paintings beautifully reproduced in full color and texts drawn from the Moncrieff/Kilmartin/Enright translation, as well as concise commentaries on the novel's evolving story, this book is an essential addition to the libraries of Proustians everywhere. The book also includes an authoritative introduction examining the various ways in which Proust used paintings and the arts to extend his descriptive vocabulary, and a comprehensive index of artists and paintings mentioned in the novel. 200 full-color paintings

About the Author: Eric Karpeles is a painter who was educated at Haverford College, Oxford University, and The New School. He lives in California.

Book Description »In Search of Lost Time« von Marcel Proust ist eines der tiefgreifendsten Werke der Weltliteratur - ein Roman, der sich der detaillierten Beschreibung der Menschen, ihrer Gewohnheiten und ihrer Kunst widmet. Prousts Werk ist voll von Verweisen auf Maler und ihre Gemälde. Eric Karpeles' reich illustriertes Buch ist ein Augenschmaus, das die enge Beziehung zwischen bildender Kunst und Literatur in Prousts Meisterwerk nachzeichnet. Hierfür hat der Autor alle Gemälde, auf die Proust direkten Bezug nimmt, identifiziert und zusammengestellt: Botticellis Engel, Manets Kurtisanen, Mantegnas Krieger und Carpaccios Heilige stehen neben Monets Wasserlilien und Piranesis Stichen von Rom, während Karpeles' einfühlsames Essay und sein klar strukturierter Begleittext erklären, welche Bedeutung diese Werke für Proust hatten. Zahlreiche Anmerkungen und ein umfangreicher Index aller Maler und Gemälde, die im Roman vorkommen, bieten eine unschätzbare Quelle für all jene, die sich detailliert mit Prousts Text auseinandersetzen möchten. Text engl. 18,5 x 27 cm, 352 S., zahlr. farbige Abb., geb. Bookseller Inventory # 426180
