- 22 May 2014 - 27 October 2014


Albert Ernest Carrier-Belleuse (1824-1887) was one of the most famous and certainly one of the most omnipresent sculptors of the Second Empire. He started his career in a goldsmith's workshop, rose through the ranks in sculpture until he won recognition at the Salon. "He is almost a sculpting machine. Every day busts, ornaments, statues, figurines, bronzes, candelabra, caryatids come out of his workshop. Bronze, marble, plaster, alabaster - he sculpts, shapes, carves everything.
