A woodland scene; members of the travelling circus relax next to their caravan. The son of poor parents, Auguste Brouet (1872 - 1941), worked his own way through night drawing classes, and then the Ecole des Beaux-Arts. He lived in poverty as an art student, but became well known to collectors due to the sincerity of his portryals of the street-peddlers, gypsies, street-musicians, beggars, and rag pickers, whom he would depict in the passages and places where they congregated. He became enthralled by the singers, dancers, and circus life of Paris. Having lived the in the poverty of those he was portraying, Brouet's work conveys a sensitivity and sympathy for his subjects uncommon amongst his contemporaries. Not only is he acclaimed as one of Paris's most important etchers, he has also etched approximately 20 plates of World War I, acclaimed not only for their historical accuracy and reliabilty, but for intense artistic quality.
