Sofia Laskaridou (1882 – 1965) studied at the School of Fine Arts (1903-1907) under Konstantinos Volanakis, Georgios Roilos, Nikephoros Lytras and Georgios Jakovides and also took lessons from Spyridon Vikatos.

During the decade of 1897-1907, while still a student, she took part in many important artistic exhibitions, at the Zappeion Hall, the Society of Art Devotees and the Parnassos Hall as well as the International Exhibition of Athens in 1903.

In 1906 she presented a show of her works, along with Thaleia Flora, and in 1907 had a solo exhibition at Parnassos Hall. With a scholarship from the Bozeios Bequest she completed her studies in Munich where she took private lessons and enrolled in the School of Ladies of the Society of Women Artists.

She later settled in Paris, studying at the Grande Chaumiere and Colarossi Academies and presenting works at official Salons and group exhibitions. After her return to Greece in 1916 she continued her artistic and exhibition activity with appearances in group exhibitions and the organization of solo shows (1917, 1919, 1924, 1927, 1952). She lived the last years of her life in seclusion.

Her subject matter included genre scenes, portraits, still lifes and landscapes, which she rendered by exploiting the doctrines of impressionism.
