Anka Muhlstein's New Book "The Pen and the Brush" Explores the Link Between Art and Literature

From the New York Review of Books:

The Pen and the Brush: How Passion for Art Shaped Nineteenth-Century French Novels
I have often wondered why nineteenth-century French novelists were quite literally obsessed with painters and painting,” writes New York Review contributor Anka Muhlstein in her new book, The Pen and the Brush. “Read Stendhal, Flaubert, the Goncourt brothers, Anatole France, Huysmans, Maupassant, Mirbeau, and of course Proust, and you enter a world in which painting is surprisingly important.” Muhlstein will give a lecture based on the book, which was excerpted in the January 19, 2017 issue of the Review, and sign copies.
