Pierre-André Brouillet, born in Charroux (Vienne) on September 1 1857, died December 5 1914 in Couhé Vérac (Vienne), was a French painter best known for his painting A Clinical Lesson at the Salpêtrière (1888) which depicts neurologist Jean Martin Charcot during his famous Tuesday sessions, who examines a patient suffering from hysteria, Blanche Wittmann. He is surrounded by his students and collaborators, among which Théodule Ribot. Particularly visible is Joseph Babinski, who supports the swooning patient.

Sigmund Freud probably attended one of these sittings during his 1885 apprenticeship.
