René Brô (November 21, 1930 - December 6, 1986) was a French artist. Brô's works of this period - pottery, drawings and paintings – are close to the works of Paul Klee or to that which Jean Dubuffet characterized as art brut.
In 1949 René Brô was exhibiting for the first time, at a joint exhibition in Paris. Afterwards he hitchhiked to Italy. During this trip he got to know the Austrian painter Hundertwasser who was on the move too; they were to be lifelong friends. In 1954 René Brô had his first one-man exhibition in Paris. Ten years later, in 1964, he was invited to represent France at the Venice Biennial. In 1968 he even set up a studio in Venice where he subsequently was active during a decade. He had many successful exhibitions around Europe and the world in the 1970s and 1980s.
