Description Born in Langendorf, East Prussia on May 12, 1832 into an aristocratic family. Von Perbandt studied at the Düsseldorf Academy under Lessing and Achenbach. For political reasons he decamped to the U.S. in 1870. After several years in NYC, he moved to San Francisco in 1876. He was based there except for a period of about five years when he lived in the backwoods of Sonoma, Mendocino, and Humboldt counties leading, according to the Morning Call, "a careless bohemian life." While in the rural areas, he painted several scenes of Fort Ross and lived among the Pomo Indians for a while.

Von Perbandt shared a studio in San Francisco with Henry Raschen and often accompanied Raschen on painting excursions. His works bear evidence of the Barbizon and Hudson River schools. Many of his paintings were lost in the earthquake and fire of 1906.

Von Perbandt returned to Germany in 1903 and died in Nahmgeist on April 6, 1911.
