Born in Manhattan in 1939, Broder considers himself a San Franciscan, having grown up in San Francisco since he was 4 years old and descending from generations of a family born there. It is not surprising Broder became an artist. His mother, Dorothy studied concert piano and his father, Stephen experienced success as a commercial artist. Boder’s uncle, painter and muralist William Hesthal created the railroad and shipping fresco inside Coit Tower in 1933 through President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Public Work Project.
A Bite of Plum
by William Broder (20x24 oil)
Broder describes his style as a Fauvist, Neo-Impressionist and an Approximist. “I’m attemping to approximate what I see and what I feel”, he says. "It always seems to be an approximation. If I have it exactly, I don’t know it...I am always reaching for it. I wanted to be a discoverer and an inventor. In a way that’s what I do. To invent something that I have never known that I was capable of creating...or a technique...or to find a place within myself to view things that I hadn’t seen before."
After earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in painting in 1963 from the San Francisco Art Institute, Broder continued using oil paints for four or five years afterward until he changed to using acrylics. It was at this time he made the decision that symbolized a deliberate choice to remain an artist. “Essentially, I am an artist because I have to be. I tried to it give up”, he says, “I was being an artist, because, in fact, that is what I was.”

"He’s the most passionate, involved artist I know and that shows in his painting", says Peter Kraemer, owner of Welcome Grant Gallery in Virginia City, Nevada. “Broder’s devotion to his craft motivates him to progress artistically."
