Tokareva is a celebrated painter from the “elite” circle of Moscow painters that includes Yuri Kugach, Vasili Nechitailo and the Tkachev Brothers. Following her father’s arrest during Stalin’s Purges, Aleksandra had a difficult path to follow in her professional career. Eventually, the “daughter of an enemy of the people” gained entrance into the Repin Institute in St. Petersburg, ironically, due to her receiving a Stalin Grant. Today, Tokareva is a celebrated painter with well over 40 exhibitions to her name and works in multiple museums.

She is listed on page 320 of Matthew Bown's, A Dictionary of Twentieth Century Russian and Soviet Painters.
