Karolina Borchardt became Poland’s first aviatrix in the 1920’s.
In 1941 she escaped from Soviet-occupied Poland to Sweden, and then to London.
Karolina works as a secretary to one of the ministers of the Polish Exile Government in London where she became a British citizen in 1948. A few years after the war Karolina begins to invest some of her savings in war-damaged houses. She has them repaired, in turn sells them until, in the 1960’s Hilton (of the hotels) buys one of her properties in central London. This enables her to retire and to devote her life to painting, her dream for many years, until her death in 1995. In 1975 a catalogue of some of her paintings titled “Karolina Borchardt” was commissioned by Gallerie Internationale of New York U.S.A. with Introduction by Pierre Rouve Vice President of World Art Critics Association.
