Claire Demartinécourt-Modret was a French painter. Born on January 2, 1896 in Melun (Seine-et-Marne), she was the daughter of a retired infantry commander, property owner and knight of the Legion of Honour. She studied painting at the National School of Fine Arts in Dijon and exhibited in Paris at the Salon des Indépendants from 1929 onward. She mainly paints still lifes of flowers and landscapes, indiscriminately signing Demartinécourt and Demartinécourt-Modret (her maternal surname).
