Jean-Jacques Salgon, auteur de ce "véritable moule à Marcel" série limitée, n° 35 (voir au dos: "se méfier des imitations"). Et six portraits de Proust au lieu d'un! merci encore de cette idée qui a enthousiasmé le "petit clan" des "Dînez avec Proust"
Ce moule à madeleines est parfaitement authentique, pas la peine de demander à Swann ce qu'il pense de son origine (ni au musée Van Gogh, je ne publie pas aux Editions du Seuil, malheureusement)
Jean-Jacques Salgon, the artist who made this "authentic Marcel mold", limited edition n° 35 (see the back:"don't be fooled by imitations"). And six portraits of Proust, isn't it better than one?
This mold is confirmed authentic, no need to ask Swann what he thinks of its origin.
“What do you suppose it is?” “Oh, well, if it comes from Gilbert’s, it is probably one of your ancestors,” said Swann with a blend of irony and deference towards a form of greatness which he would have felt it impolite and absurd to despise, but to which for reasons of good taste he preferred to make only a playful reference. “To be sure, it is,” said the Duke bluntly. “It’s Boson, the I forget how manieth de Guermantes. Not that I care a damn about that. You know I’m not as feudal as my cousin. I’ve heard the names mentioned of Rigaud, Mignard, Velazquez even!” he went on, fastening on Swann the gaze of an inquisitor and executioner in an attempt at once to read into his mind and to influence his response. “Well,” he concluded, for when he was led to provoke artificially an opinion which he desired to hear, he had the faculty, after a few moments, of believing that it had been spontaneously uttered; “come, now, none of your flattery, do you think it’s by one of those big masters I’ve mentioned?” “Nnnnno,” said Swann. “But after all, I know nothing about these things, it’s not for me to decide who daubed the canvas. But you’re a dilettante, a master of the subject, to whom do you attribute it? You’re enough of an expert to have some idea. What would you put it down as?” Swann hesitated for a moment before the picture, which obviously he thought atrocious. “A bad joke!” he replied with a smile at the Duke who could not check an impulsive movement of rage.The Guermantes Way
