Khokhlova, Anna Pavlovna

Хохлова, Анна Павловна

Born October 19, 1918, Palekh, Soviet Russia; Died May 30, 1982, presumably in Palekh, USSR

Anna Pavlovna Khokhlova worked in the field of decorative and applied arts. Posters were likely just a sideline since there is no published information about the artist having a long-lasting graphic design career. Khokhlova was born into a family of icon painters from Palekh, a town east of Moscow. Historically, the town was a hub for religious icon design and for the creation of lacquered miniature art called Palekh.

From 1933 to 1938 Anna Khokhlova studied under the tutelage of Alexander V. Kotukhin at the Palekh Art School. Until 1940, she worked at the Red Porcelain Factory in Leningrad region where she used her skill in paint application to adorn chinaware. From 1943 to 1973, Khokhlova worked at the Palekh Artists' Association (later, Palekh Art and Production Workshops). As a professional artist, Khokhlova began exhibiting her work in 1950. She was an elected deputy of the Palekh District and served on the Ivanovo Regional Council of People's Deputies. Anna Pavlovna Khokhlova was a member of the Union of Artists of the USSR.
