From Proust to Marsans

By Charlotte Stace



Published on October 1, 2022

Coinciding with the centenary of the death of Proust, Fundacio Vila Casas’ latest exhibition aims to help the public discover, on the one hand, the world of a unique novelist and that of his great work, À la recherche du temps perdu (In Search of Lost Time), and, on the other hand, that of his main artistic interpreter, Luis Marsans, who spent his life recreating the work ever since his first exhibition at the Galeria Trece in Barcelona in 1972.

The exhibition is presented – in three sections – as an introduction to the narrative world of the novel In Search of Lost Time and role that art and music play as great literary metaphors; it features a wide selection of drawings, watercolours, gouaches and engravings through which Marsans evoked the book with a broad interpretative freedom; and the unique reception Proust’s work has received in Catalonia from the nineteen twenties to present day.
