Albert-Ernest Carrier de Belleuse (1824-1887) was a notable French sculptor who was born in France. Carrier-Belleuse was famous for the wide range of his work—from sober monuments to torchères and tabletop elements.

His acclaimed monumental marble Messiah of 1867 won him state patronage. He made figures of voluptuous women such as Angélique caused debate and controversy. Belleuse was a highly sought-after portraitist due to his master of anatomy and characterization.

He was made an officer of the Legion of Honour in 1855 because he was a major force behind the establishment in the early 1860s of what later became the Museum of Decorative Arts, an institution that elevated the status of the applied arts in France.
