Pierre CARRIER-BELLEUSE (1851-1932) ~ Ballet ✿

French painter Carrier-Belleuse was born in Paris, the son of the sculptor Albert-Ernest Carrier-Belleuse and the brother of the painter Louis-Robert Carrier-Belleuse, he studied at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris
Exhibiting at the Paris Salon in 1875, Carrier-Belleuse went on to win the prestigious Silver Medal at the Exposition Universelle of 1889.
Although a painter of landscapes, portraits and genre scenes, his best-known works are intimate portraits of women that emphasis the poise and grace of the feminine body, and in particular those of the corps de ballet.
Much of his work currently resides in international private collections. Carrier-Belleuse’s least-known works today are, ironically, the most widely circulated during his own lifetime: drawings and lithographs produced for the newspaper Le Figaro.
