This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

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.

Clearly, both Rembrandt and Brouet shared an affinity for both compositional settings and a deep concern for humanity: but Brouet's art is no slavish imitation.  His strong sense of modernity, his bold combination of etching with drypointing and his very individualistic sense of design and tone, makes Brouet's original prints among the most striking works of art in the early twentieth century.
