* Edouard Joseph Goerg (1893-1969)

Born in Australia, of French parents, in a merchant family in Champagne, he soon earns their counters in England, where he remained for several years before settling in Paris in 1900. Therefore, the young Edward traveled extensively in France and in Italy, India and Ceylon. Very early for painting, he became a pupil of Maurice Denis and Paul Serusier at the Académie Ranson, where he studied from 1913 to 1914. The long conflict against his father to death of it (1929) directs the painting Goerg to a critique of society. From 1920 he became one of the major figures of French expressionism. But a whole period of his work also brings him closer to surrealism, including its work in the field of lithography. In the interwar years, its success is clear. He did not participate in the workshops less sacred art with his former master Maurice Denis.Dans the 1950s, he taught the art of engraving at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. He also becomes president of the Society of French painter-engravers and was elected member of the Academy of Fine Arts in 1965. (See Bénézit)
