Paulina Antonovna Komolova was born on July 23, 1916 in the village of Krasnov in the Panin district of the Voronezh Region to a family of a military doctor. After finishing secondary school she studied at the Armavir School of Painting and Drawing (which was later united with the Rostov Art School). She graduated from the Rostov Art College in 1930. In 1938 she entered the Moscow Textual Institute, where she studied for three years. Her teacher was Pyotr Petrovich Konchalovsky. She was a friend of the Konchalovsky family and was able to paint in Pyotr’s private studio.

Paulina’s studies were interrupted in 1941 with the beginning of World War II. After the war, she returned to her studies and graduated from the Textile Institute in 1946.

She began exhibiting her works in 1943. In 1964 she became a member of the Artists’ Union of the USSR. Since her admission into the Union she has taken part in all regional and zonal art exhibitions. In 1997 she received a diploma for the successful participation in the VIII Exhibition of Art of central towns of Russia.

Paulina’s paintings can be found in museums, including the Voronezh Kramskoi Museum, as well as in galleries and private collections in Russia and abroad.

Paulina Komolova is the widow of the famous artist Vasili Kuzmich Komolov. Paulina passed away in the Spring of 2008 in Voronezh.
