Λουκία Νικολαϊδου
Γεννήθηκε στη Λεμεσό το 1909 και πέθανε στο 
Penn  της Αγγλίας το 1993. Σπούδασε στο Παρίσι.  Είναι η πρώτη Κύπρια  που ασχολήθηκε, με πρωτοποριακό μάλιστα τρόπο, με τη ζωγραφική.
Τα έργα της έχουν μετα-ϊμπρεσιονιστικές αναζητήσεις και αυτά που έκανε στην Αγγλία, όπου έζησε το μεγαλύτερο μέρος της ζωής της, χαρακτηρίζονται από διαρκείς πειραματισμούς.

Loukia Nicolaidou
Born in Limassol in 1909.
Upon high-school graduation she enrolled at ABC School in Paris receiving painting lessons by correspondence for a year.  In 1929 she became the first Cypriot woman to study abroad, at the Colarossi Academy in Paris for a year. She then was accepted at the Ecole nationale Superieure des Bauex-Arts, at the famous atelier of prof Loucien Simon.  Upon her graduation she returned to Cyprus and had her first personal exhibition in April 1933 at the Papdopoulos Mansion, Nicosia, but had a poor response from the Cyprus public.  In 1937 she left Cyprus  for London, where her older sister had settled.  In 1939 she participated in a group exhibition with well known artists and her work made quite an impression.  After her marriage to shipowner Ioannis Vassiliou she gradualy witdrew from artistic activities.
