Biography Auguste Brouet
An original etcher* of early twentieth century French art, Auguste Brouet created over three hundred drypoints* and etchings during his career. From a background of poverty, Brouet was apprenticed to first a lithographer* and then a lute maker, taking classes at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts* in Paris when time and money would permit.
The great Paris printer, Auguste Delatre, introduced Brouet to etching and his first original creation in this medium dates from shortly after 1900. Not surprisingly, many of Brouet's finest works of art deal with the poor and working classes of Paris and the surrounding countryside. In this light, several scholars have compared Brouet's art to the etchings of Rembrandt.
