Marie-Anne Collot (also Marie-Anne Falconet), French sculptor. Exclusively a portrait sculptor, the busts she produced in Paris in 1765 and 1766, including Frederich Melchior von Grimm (private collection), show such an extraordinary precociousness that it has been suggested they are the results of a collaboration with her first teacher, Jean-Baptiste Lemoyne II. In her portrait of Etienne-Noël Damilaville (terracotta; Paris, Louvre), she succeeded in expressing both the physical pain and mental anguish suffered by this forgotten philosopher.
She was a pupil and daughter-in-low of tienne-Maurice Falconet.
