He also worked as a decorative painter, counting among his public commissions the decoration of several theatres, as well as the buffet restaurant in the Gare de Lyon in Paris and the restaurant La Grande Taverne in Dijon, for which he painted a Scène de Brasserie. Among the works illustrated by Calbet were editions of Emile Zola's Madame Neigeon, Guy de Maupaussant's Bel ami, Jean-Jacques Rousseau's Confessions and Paul Verlaine's Fêtes galantes.
He also provided illustrations for magazine short stories, such as Henri de Régnier's Le veuvage de Shéhérazade, published in the Christmas 1925 issue of L'Illustration.
