Pierre Carrier-Belleuse
Portraits of Two Young Girls

1909

About

This is a lovely, sensitive portrait of two young girls by the noted French artists Pierre Carrier-Belleuse. He has captured the beautiful innocense of his subjects through his delicate use of pastel (a powdered pigment mixed with very little gum, compressed into small, colored crayons or sticks for drawing). Their pose is one which loving sisters might take, the younger resting close to the older. A transparent veil encloses both of them within its soft blue folds. The pink flowers they are holding are reflected in the subtle blush of their cheeks. The oval shape of the veil is repeated in the frame, giving an intimacy to the painting that would not be found using a square one. This is a fine example of Carrier-Belleuse’s ability to portray the mood and spirit of La Belle Epoque.
