Louis Edmond Duranty was a French novelist and art critic, born on 5 June 1833 in Paris where
he died on 9 April 1880 (at the age of 46). In 1861, he obtained permission to install in the Jardin des Tuileries a theatre for
permanent marionettes; the painter, Courbet, would create the sets. He even wrote a complete repertoire dedicated to George Sand, including twenty-four sketches
featuring Polichinelle, Pierrot and Arlequin as the protagonists.
In 1870, Duranty’s marionettes would be seized by creditors, precipitating the end of the
“Guignol des Tuileries”
