Posted 11/27/2014 4:50pm by Eugene Wyatt.

On June 4, (1912) the day the Figaro published another excerpt from Swann's Way, "Rayon de soleil sur le balcon" (A ray of sunlight on the balcony), Proust called for Albaret to drive him to the Bernheim-Jeune Gallery to see the exhibition "Venice and Claude Monet." Proust had been unable to resist twenty-nine paintings of Venice by the master he admired more than any contemporary painter.
