Claire Jeanne Roberte Colinet (1880–1950) A French sculptor
of Belgian birth who worked during the early-to-mid 20th century.
The subject matter of her best known works was primarily Arab female
dancers. The majority of her career output in sculpture can be
classified as being of the Art Deco style. Colinet was a frequent
exhibitor at the Salon des Artistes Francais and Salon des
Independents art exhibitions in Paris. Her sculptures, most of which
depicted beautifully figured, energized, and dramatic female forms,
were exhibited posthumously at the Paris Salon for nearly 30 years.
