Paul Nadar

A Proust Souvenir
by William Howard Adams
Publisher's Description
William Howard Adams has assembled an interesting selection of work by the French nineteenth-century portrait photographer Paul Nadar, son of Gaspard Félix Nadar. Nadar moved within the highest of literary and artistic circles of Paris, one of which included the great writer, Marcel Proust. Nadar's portraits, nicely reproduced here, are of those artists, writers, actresses, and other family members and friends who played an important part in Proust's life. Adams contributes penetrating analyses of how the people portrayed by Nadar fit into Proust's writings and social life.
