Brouet was born to a poor family in Paris in 1872, and as a teenager worked as an apprentice lithographer and lute maker. He attended the Ecole des Beaux Artes, under the tutelage of Gustave Moreau, and was then introduced to etching by Auguste Delatre. He went on to become one of the most successful original etchers of the early 20th century in France, specializing in scenes of daily life of the working class as well as his remarkable images of dancers.
