This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Alma Magdalena Hirsig Bliss was born in Bern, Switzerland on June 24, 1875.  Alma Hirsig studied painting under G. DeBillemot-Chardon, Rene Prinet, and Gustave Courtois in Paris before immigrating to the U.S. about 1900. 

After settling in New York City with her well-to-do parents, she further studied at the Art Students League and with Robert Reid, Willard Metcalf, and Douglas Volk.  By 1920 she was the wife of Louis E. Bliss; by 1923 she was a widow.

She became known for her miniatures which won prizes in juried exhibitions.  She appears to have made trips to California to paint and exhibit.  Primarily a miniature painter, she also painted Barbizon landscapes and a mural in the Wilbraham & Monson Academy in Massachusetts. 

Her work was shown with the Society of Independent Artists, 1921; Pennsylvania Society of Miniature Painters, 1931 (prize); American Society of Miniature Painters, 1932 (prize); National Society of Women Artists; California Society of Miniature Painters,  1938 (medal). 

Her works are held in the Metropolitan Museum; Corcoran Gallery (Washington, DC); Philadelphia Museum of Art; Norfolk Museum; Brooklyn Museum; Smithsonian Institute Art Museum.
