Professor Akademie der Künste, Munich; author of the Bilder Atlas.  The Bilder-Atlas was later translated by Arthur Frothingham and Allan Marquand. In 1880 J. J. Tikkanen studied under Carrière. In the early 1890's Carrière was criticized by the young Richard Muther in the Münchner Neuesten Nachrichten as being provincial.

Carrière was "an idealist aesthetician, half literary scholar, half art historian, and a representative of the Kunst-und-Kulture school of thought" (Ringbom).
