Petit pan de mur jaune

€ 24.90 tax included

At the end of In Search of Lost Time, Proust has the writer Bergotte pass away in front of Vermeer's View of Delft. Remembering that a detail of the painting, the "little patch of yellow wall", had once inspired him, he was seized by one final sentiment of time regained.

Twenty-two authors use an artwork from the museum as a starting point for fiction, creating a novel encounter between writing and the museum.
