Catalogue Note

Carrier Belleuse's busts were among some of his most remarkable works: both portraiture and allegorical subjects. Perhaps in his allegorical subjects, where his imagination could have free reign, his virtuosity is showcased fully. The present bust of an Algerian woman, with its soft features and serene smile, is a beautiful example of his skill, and compares closely to some of his well-known allegorical subjects, such as the bust of Alsace.
