1922 – 2009

Kopnina was a graduate of the Repin Institute in St. Petersburg in 1950.

Beginning in 1949, she participated in most Russian and All-Union exhibitions throughout her life.

She was a member of Leningrad (now St. Petersburg′s) Union of Artists since 1950. She was a recipient of a one-person show in 1985. She was best known for painting figurative work of children.

Since 1960, for over 30 years, she taught painting and drawing at the Secondary Art School (now the Artistic Lyceum named after Boris Ioganson of the Russian Academy of Arts) in St. Petersburg.

The painting ″Girls″ is pictured in Vern Swanson’s 2008 book Soviet Impressionist Painting.

She is listed on page 155 of Matthew Bown's, A Dictionary of Twentieth Century Russian and Soviet Painters.
