Camille-Felix Bellanger follows in the strong French Academic tradition of his illustrious teachers William Adolphe Bougereau and Alexandre Cabanel, with whom he studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. At this school, he received the second Prix de Rome in 1875 and established his place as a painter of history and genre.

Bellanger exhibited regularly at the Salon des Artistes Français until his death. He exhibited Mort d'abel at the Salon of 1875 and the painting was acquired by the State of France. This painting is currently in the collection of the Musée du Louvre in Paris.

His painting entitled Christ au tombeau is in the Church Saint-Severin in Paris. He created a large number of portraits in both oil and pencil drawing, and some of his exceptional and detailed drawings are in the collection of the Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco.

Bellanger exhibited lithographs and developed a speciality of portraits. As the author of Carnet du jeune dessinateur and of Traite du Penture, he is also considered to be a writer about art.

Bellanger was awarded the great distinction of Chevalier of the Legion of Honor in 1911.
