Claire Jeanne Roberte Colinet (1880–1950)
French sculptor of Belgian birth who worked during the early-to-mid
20th century. The subject matter of her best known work 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.
