One of the most anticipated novels of the year, Painting Time by Maylis de Kerangal follows the life of Paula Karst, a young artist in Brussels that tries to grapple with what it means to be an artist. She decides to reject the allure of high art to focus on the demanding art of craftsmanship in a journey that leads her to Paris, Moscow, Italian movie sets and finally Lascaux IV, the facsimile of the most famous Paleolithic cave.
Join best-selling author Maylis de Kerangal and Rosie Goldsmith, director of the European Literature Network, for this conversation on art in literature.
