French painter and designer. He came from a family of shopkeepers and tailors and he served in the Republican army during the wars of the Vende. By 1798 he was a student of Jacques-Louis David,
who provided a small apartment in the Louvre where Broc often lived. With a group of Davids students and some writers, Broc formed a dissenting sect called Les Primitifs, Barbus (bearded ones), Mditateurs or Penseurs. Broc was typical of the Primitifs in finding inspiration in Greek vase painting and Italian 15th-century art.
