Pierre Carrier-Belleuse ( 1851 - 1933)
Pierre Carrier-Belleuse was one of four artists born in Paris to Albert-Ernest Carrier-Belleuse (1824-1887) a successful sculptor who also worked for the Sevres porcelain factory. 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.
