Dans Trois Primitifs, enfin, il s'attarde sur des artistes jusque-là négligés: constitué d'une monographie de Mathias Grünewald et du récit de l. a. visite de l'Institut Staedel de Francfort, ce texte apparaît comme un retour sur l'origine même de son intérêt pour les arts plastiques. Souvent ironiques et pleins de verve - Il peint à los angeles bile, comme d'autres à l. a. gouache, à l'encaustique ou au pastel écrivait Charles Maurras -, ces écrits présentent un double intérêt: outre qu'on y découvre les peintres de prédilection de Huysmans, de Degas à Caillebotte, en passant par Renoir, Monet et Hokusai, ils éclairent aussi, par ricochet, les romans de l'auteur et l. a. fonction singulière qu'y assument les œuvres d'art.
