CARRIER-BELLEUSE Albert Emest, real name:
Carrier de Belleuse
Born June 12, 1824 in Anizy-le-Château (Aisne). Died on June 3rd
1887 in Sèvres. XIXth century. French.
Sculptor of groups, busts, draftsman. Student of David d'Angers at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, where he entered in 1840. He started at the Salon in 1851. His fame began in 1861 with his group Salve Regina which earned him a third medal. The Bacchante, in 1863, put it quite in sight and, finally, in 1867, he obtained with the Messiah the medal of honor of the Salon. In the same year, he was decorated with the Legion of Honor, and continued to exhibit regularly at the Salon until his death. He was attached to the Manufacture de Sèvres as director of the works of art.
His technique is both bold and delicate, the exquisite feeling that emerges from his groups have sometimes made him compare to Clodion. He sculpted many busts, among which those of: Emest Renan, Napoleon III, Jules Simon. His decorative statuettes were furious under the Second Empire, which seem today somewhat insipid.
