Edmond de Goncourt


French writer; novelist, historian and art critic. From 1848, he lived and worked inseparably with his brother Jules until Jules' death on 6/20/1870. They began as artists, touring France from 1849 and keeping notes, which led them toward writing. Their novels and documentaries described lives of everyday characters; their first publication was in 1854. The Goncourt's are the founders of the school of naturalism, but it did not become famous until their disciple Emile Zola became its leader.

He died 7/16/1896, Champresay, France, leaving a large sum of his will to found Academie Goncourt, which annually awards the celebrated prix Goncourt.
