Son of the sculptor Albert-Ernest Carrier-Belleuse. First a pupil of his father, then of Alexandre Cabanel at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, he exhibited for the first time at the Salon of 1875. He received an honorable mention there in 1887. Like his father, his work is essentially about Woman. His drawings of dancers were frequently reproduced in Le Figaro illustrated.
Pierre Carrier-Belleuse took part in the Universal Exhibition of 1889 and won a silver medal which put him out of competition. He entered the National Society of Fine Arts in 1890, and was appointed member in 1893. He exhibited there every year pastels which made his success. In 1895, Carrier-Belleuse was appointed president of the International Society of Painting and Sculpture.
