Colomb, Michel

Colomb or Colombe, Michel both: mēshĕl´ kôlôN´ [key], c.1430–1512, French sculptor, one of the masters of the French Renaissance. Few of his works survive. His name is associated with the execution of the tomb of Francis II, duke of Brittany (completed 1507; Nantes). A relief by Colomb, St. George and the Dragon (Louvre), shows a high degree of imagination and skill.
