About the artist (from Wikipedia):
Marcel-Valentin-Louis-Eugène-Georges (July 10, 1871 – November 18, 1922) was a French intellectual, novelist, essayist and critic, best known as the author of In Search of Lost Time (in French, À la recherche du temps perdu), a monumental work of twentieth-century fiction consisting of seven volumes published from 1913 to 1927 (the last three volumes posthumously).

The son of well-to-do parents, Proust was born in Auteuil (the southern sector of Paris’s then-rustic 16th arrondissement) at the home of his great-uncle, two months after the Treaty of Frankfurt formally ended the Franco-Prussian War. His birth took place during the violence that surrounded the suppression of the Paris Commune, and his childhood corresponds with the consolidation of the French Third Republic. Much of In Search of Lost Time concerns the vast changes, most particularly the decline of the aristocracy and the rise of the middle classes, that occurred in France during the Third Republic and the fin de siècle.
