August Pulst (1889-1977) was an artist, whose actions in collecting antiques and capturing folk music are priceless in preserving Estonian national heritage. He learned painting in the Academy of Fine Arts in Riga in the years 1911-1915. He painted mainly oil paintings and watercolours, in which he reached to a remarkable level. His mythological paintings originate from the 1970s.
August Pulst has given his name to the school in Viljandi Traditional Music Centre, where music courses and instrument classes take place. This year is his 120th anniversary.
