Nicolas Joseph 'Claus' Cito (26 May 1882 – 10 October 1965) was a Luxembourgian sculptor. He is most notable for having created the original Gëlle Fra war memorial.

Cito trained at the Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts in Brussels. His work can also be found at the Notre-Dame Cathedral, Luxembourg.

Cito was a cofounder of the Luxembourg secession movement in 1926 which promoted Expressionism. He exhibited at the first salon in 1927.[1]
