Romodanovskaya Antonina Alexeyevna (1906, Moscow – 1985, Moscow).
Romodanovskaya studied at the Higher Art and Technical Workshops, later Institute (VHUTEMAS-VHUTEIN) (1930); V. Favorsky and N. Kupreyanov were her teachers. Initially she worked in the field of xylography (1928-1930), but from mid-thirties on she wholly concentrated on easel drawing and watercolor painting. During her trips to Altai, Middle Asia, down the Volga and to Trans-Baikal she made landscape sketches and watercolor pictures. Later on, cityscape became the chief domain of her work. In 1947, Romodanovskaya produced a cityscape series Around the Kremlin’s Ancient Walls dedicated to the 800th anniversary of Moscow. A series of watercolors was a result of her trip to Leningrad in 1952. She depicted landmarks of Kiev, Novgorod, Pskov, Odessa, Moscow region and the area in Ryazan region where the poet Sergei Yesenin lived. In the late 1950s and 60s, she designed postcards and envelopes; reproductions of her works were published in periodicals such as Ogonyok, Smena, Inostrannaya literatura, Sovetskaya zhenschina, Vechernyaya Moskva. The artist’s works are in the State Tretyakov Gallery, in the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts, in the Museum of Moscow city history, in fine art museums of Bashkiria, Yakutia, Yekaterinburg, Samara, and Cheboksary.
