This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Oskaloosa, Iowa, Mildred Pneuman was a painter in watercolor and oil of landscapes, seascapes and still lifes, and also did wood block printing, lithographs, etchings and serigraphs. She began focusing on western themes in the mid-1920s and sketched in New Mexico, Arizona, Wyoming, California, Mexico and Canada. According to her son, Fred Pneuman, her favorite subjects were mountains, primarily in Colorado and New Mexico. She painted Southwest Indian subjects as well as early missionary scenes. Most of her block prints were done in the late 1930's and 1940's. Among the titles of her paintings were Pikes Peak, Long's Peak, Camelback and Papago, Phoenix, Late Afternoon, Tucson, and Taos, New Mexico.

Pneuman moved as an infant to Denver, Colorado where she spent her growing years. She attended North High School, and in 1921, earned a degree in history from the University of Colorado in Boulder. From 1921 to 1923, she taught art in the Los Angeles area. Then she married Frederick Pneuman, who was a bridge designer, and the couple lived in Gary, Indiana but frequently returned to Boulder.

After her husband's death in 1942, Pneuman moved permanently to Boulder and earned a Master's Degree in art in 1946, writing her thesis on the form of mountains in painting. She served as President of the Boulder Artists Guild before moving to Walnut Creek, California. In 1981, she settled in Bellevue, Washington.

In 1961, Pneuman became a Fellow of the International Institute of Arts and Literature of Geneva, Switzerland. Her work is in the Boulder County Courthouse and the University of Colorado.
