Pierre Collinet, a French sculptor of the early 20th century (exact birth and death years unknown), left an indelible impression on the artistic world with his emancipated, stylish and theatrical portraiture of ladies. Primarily active during the 1920s and 1930s, a time when the world was buzzing with new artistic movements, Collinet's works encapsulate the 'joie de vivre' of the era.

Collinet should not be confused with Claire Jeanne Roberte Colinet, another renowned sculptor of the era. Pierre Collinet was unique in his representation of independent women and notable variety dancers of the time. His sculptures evoke an aura of theatricality, designed with an eye for detail, lending each statue a sense of life and motion.

Under the tutelage of the master of Art Deco himself, Dmitry Chiparus, Collinet was trusted to continue Chiparus's celebrated series of scaled-down statuettes. With a flair for embodying the women of their era, these iconic 'chairs' statuettes by Collinet are a vivid homage to the paragons of femininity and forge a graceful link between the daily life of modern women and artistic representation.

Collinet incarnated the women of his time in his art, capturing their grace, charm and social liberation in his figurines. From a historical perspective, his works provide a charming glimpse into the lives of women during the Art Deco period and offers art aficionados gorgeous, collectible figurines that stand as enduring symbols of a transformative period in women's history.
