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. 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

From the Back Cover: "A visually stunning and surprisingly accessible book that brings out subtle facts of Proust's masterpiece, as well as artworks he cites...Karpeles comes close to encapsulating Proust's vision... Paintings in Proust could serve effectively as either a concise preface or a meaningful afterword to the monumental novel. What's more, it can be appreciated entirely on its own."Art in America
