    One thought on “Le Monde de Proust vu par Paul Nadar”

    1. This book was right up my alley for a couple different reasons:*Proust!*Photography, specifically of the late 19th-century variety.*Zola!*Sarah Bernhardt!(Proust at 16)There's not much text, so it was a breeze to look through before going to bed last night. The photographs are from Paul Nadar's archives and all involve either Proust, his family, or his contemporaries, many of whom were the real-life inspirations for characters in his collosal Remembrance of Things Past. The blurbs on each page i [...]

    2. Absolutely love this book! (I will have to purchase it.) I love the poses, the clothing and the furniture. I love black and white photos. Nader was an exceptional photographer!

    3. Just magnificent! For those embarking on a year of Proust, this is a great way to prepare Some of these picturesare, if fact, incredibly poignant -- because more than a few of these figures seem so alive and so wonderfully modern.

    4. A collection of photographs by Paul Nadar - family and friends, artists and aristocrats - a whole range of influence brought to life. Definitely a keeper!

    5. Insolent and vain, he did not mind losing his friends for the sake of a witticism. Proust was immediately fascinated by his character.-Anne-Marie Bernard on Robert de Montesquieu
