This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born on Aug. 3, 1899 in Leavenworth, KS.   A graduate of St Mary's Academy in her native city, Mina Schutz began her art studies at the Kansas City Art Institute. After her marriage to George Pulsifer in 1923, the couple moved to San Diego the following year.  She continued her studies at the San Diego Academy of Fine Arts under DeVol and Schneider, and privately with Nicolai Fechin and Frederick Taubes. 

After taking up printmaking in the 1940s, her lithographs were included in two European traveling shows organized by the Boston Public Library.  Her portraits are intimate and life-like while the success of her prints is due to the accuracy and clarity of her drawing.   Her painting style changed with the times from Regionalist scenes of the 1930s and 1940s to Expressionism in the 1950s, and figurative abstracts in the 1960s.   During the 1960s she taught at the San Diego Art Guild and continued to exhibit into the 1970s.   Mina Pulsifer died in Chula Vista, CA on Feb. 14, 1989.

Member: San Diego Art Guild (pres. 1944).
