Tetyana Yablonska (Ukrainian: Яблонська Тетяна Нилівна) (24 February 1917 – 17 June 2005) was a Ukrainian painter. Her early vital pictures are devoted to work and a life of Ukrainian people ("Bread", 1949). She has passed to generalizing images of the nature, differing a subtlety of plastic and color rhythms ("Anonymous heights", 1969; "Flax", 1977).

Yablonska was born in Smolensk, Russian Empire. She studied at the Kiev State Institute of Art (1941), the studio of Fedir Krychevsky. She worked very productively until the very end of her life, reportedly painting her last pastel etude on the very day of her death.

Yablonska was awarded the honorary title "Peoples' Artists of the USSR" in 1982, "Artist of Year" (UNESCO) in 1997, "Woman of Year" (International Biography Centre, Cambridge) in 2000. She was the winner of the USSR State Prize (Stalin prize: 1949, 1951 and State Prize: 1979), and winner of the Shevchenko state prize of Ukraine (1998).

She also received the Order of the Red Banner of Labour (1951), the Order of Friendship of Peoples (1977), order Award for merits (1997) and the highest state award of Ukraine – title Hero of Ukraine (2003).
