✿ Pierre CARRIER-BELLEUSE (1851-1932) ✿

Albert-Ernest Carrier-Belleuse

'Che nel maestrale
le voci del tempo riaffioro
che nel cuor tuo lontano
il battito lieve catturo...
Sono io...
che rapisco i tuoi sogni
e che...tra le dita
suono gli anelli
dei tuoi pensieri...'

Pierre Carrier-Belleuse, born in 1851, was the son of famous painter and sculptor Albert Carrier-Belleuse. Similarly to his brother Louis-Robert Carrier-Belleuse, he learned his artistic trade from his father. Pierre studied at the l’Ecole des Beaux-Arts under Alexandre Cabanel (1824-1881) and under Pierre Victor Galland (1822-1892). He produced drawings for Figaro Illustre, which would have provided a useful income to a young artist, and from 1875 exhibited at the Salon; in 1887 receiving an honourable mention and in 1889 receiving a silver medal at the Universalle Exposition. Carrier-Belleuse was an accomplished painter in oils and excelled in pastels.
Many of his works over the years are a homage to female beauty, a genre that, in differing guises, grew in popularity in the latter nineteenth century. This homage to beauty frequently appeared in the form of dancers at work or in repose, thus catering for a new breed of collector in Paris, those familiar with the dance halls and Follies.
His works can be found in museums in: Dunkirk; Paris; La Rochelle and Reims.
