XIX - XXth century sculptures

COLINET Claire Jeanne Roberte

She was taught by the great belgian sculptor, Jef Lambeaux, before starting presenting her work in 1914. Her works were varied, from the conventional ballet poses of that period to a marvellous work of a Valkyrie maiden on horse-back. She specialised herself in chryselephantine sculptures and produced a lot of women figures with a symbolist and orientalist inspiration. Even so, she produced a collection of dancers with an Art Deco style. However the style, her subjects are always full of grace.
