Nina Pavlovna Volkova (1917 - 1993)

  

Nina Volkova was born in Kiev in 1924. She graduated from the Kiev Art Institute, and for a long time worked as a professor at the Kiev Art Institute. Nina is one of the representatives of the Kiev Art School (very bright in colors, impressionistic style). This style was very often criticized by authorities for brightness during the cold war period. In spite of this, she was a very popular artist in former USSR. Her works are included in the collections of the Odessa and Kiev Fine Art museums. 

 

Volkova participated in art shows in Germany, Sweden, Italy and England.  

 

She died in 1989 in Kiev.

Kolobova, Margarita, "Evening"
15'' x 19'', 2013, Oil on Canvas, $1,600
   

Margarita Kolobova was born in 1983 in Rostov-on-Don, Russia. From 2000 till 2005 she studied in Rostov College of Fine Arts (named after M.B.Grekov). She worked as a designer and illustrator of "Donskaya Arkheologia" journal and its web-site. She also worked as artifact illustrator on several archaeological projects. In 2006 Margarita entered the Academy of Arts in St. Petersburg. Here she studies till today. 

 

The Russian Academy of Arts, informally known as the St. Petersburg Academy of Arts, was founded in 1757 by Ivan Shuvalov under the name Academy of the Three Noblest Arts. Catherine the Great renamed it the Imperial Academy of Arts and commissioned a new building, completed 25 years later in 1789 by the Neva River. The academy promoted the neoclassical style and technique, and sent its promising students to European capitals for further study. Training at the academy was virtually required for artists to make successful careers.   

 

Formally abolished in 1918 after the Russian Revolution, the academy was renamed several times. It established free tuition; students from across the country competed fiercely for its few places annually. In 1947 the national institution was moved to Moscow, and much of its art collection was moved to the Hermitage. The building in Leningrad was devoted to the Ilya Repin Leningrad Institute for Painting, Sculpture and Architecture, named in honor of one of Russia's foremost realist artists. Since 1991 it has been called the St. Petersburg Institute for Painting, Sculpture and Architecture.
