History

Claire Jeanne Roberte Colinet (1880–1950) was a French sculptor of Belgian birth who worked during the early-to-mid 20th century. As a woman, she was in the minority in her chosen field of sculpture during the era in which she worked and lived. At an undetermined date ( probably around 1910 ) Colinet emigrated to Paris, France, where she studied sculpture under the watchful eye of Jef Lambeaux and exhibited for the first time at the Salon des Artistes Francais in 1913. She became a permanent member of the organization in 1929. From 1937 to 1940, she exhibited at the Salon des Independents in Paris and joined the Union of Women Painters and Sculptors

Her sculptures, most of which depicted beautifully figured, energized, and dramatic female forms in the Art Deco style, were exhibited posthumously at the Paris Salon for nearly 30 years

Date French c 1925

Condition Excellent original condition.
