Clémentine Martinet, born under the name of Clémentine Creuzé in 1781 in Châtellerault in Vienne is a painter.
She was the daughter of Jacques-Antoine Creuzé-Latouche, deputy of the Third Estate in 1789 then conventional and member of the Committee of Public Safety from 1793 to 1795, and the wife of Pierre-François Martinet deputy and mayor of Châtellerault between 1830 and 1835.
