Marcel Proust and the Medicine of the Belle Époque is an exhibition to be held at the RSM Library.
It opens on Monday 12th November 2018 and it runs until Saturday 26th January 2019.
The novelist and essayist Marcel Proust was the author of possibly the greatest work of twentieth-century fiction, A la Recherche du Temps Perdu (In Search of Lost Time), a work that fairly bristles with medical references, metaphors, and doctors who possess varying degrees of ability. Proust’s life (1871-1922) spans almost the whole of the Belle Époque period (1870-1914), a time when profound new scientific and philosophical theories were challenging the very foundations and forcing a re-appraisal of human knowledge, theories and exploration the like of which had never been seen before.
The exhibition is drawn from the collection of the RSM Library and includes works by members of Proust’s family (his father and brother were both distinguished doctors) and by some of the leading French physicians of the day, many of whom are depicted in fictional guise throughout A la Recherche du Temps Perdu.
Open to all

The London Charterhouse is a historic complex of buildings in Smithfield, London, dating back to the 14th century. The Charterhouse began as (and takes its name from) a Carthusian priory, founded in 1371 and dissolved in 1537. The site was largely rebuilt after 1545 as a large courtyard house. Thus, today it "conveys a vivid impression of the type of large rambling 16th century mansion that once existed all round London". At different times it has been used as a parliamentary building, an almshouse and a school – but this is no relic preserved in aspic, it’s a fully functioning community which provides ‘a home for gentlemen pensioners’. Our guided tour will take us to the Museum and through the historic buildings, explaining their history and high-lighting items from the collection. Tour lasts approximately 1 hour.
