This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from Linda Chase:

My husband Jim recently found my great grandfather (Ferdinand Kaufmann) on your web site.  I have 9 pictures of his hanging in my home that my Mother gave me.  She has 3 in her home.  My great grandfather adored my mother, and often took her with him to watch him paint his landscapes.   His daughter Yvonne, is my mother's mother.  I understand that he had a son that died.  My mother told me he was a Baron from Bavaria, came to the US, and lost his money in the stock market. 

He did paintings for a living, and my mother told me that he had people paying him $250 to paint a painting-this before he had even painted any of it!   My mother's mother gave away many of his paintings as gifts, and I always wondered where some of them are now.

Exhibited:
Pasadena Art Institute, 1928, 1929
Laguna Beach Gallery, 1930
Academy of Western Painters, 1936

Biography from William A. Karges Fine Art - Beverly Hills:
Ferdinand Kaufman was born in Germany in 1864, and studied art in Paris. Among his teachers was Edouard Manet.  Kaufman left Europe to settle in Southern California in 1921, where he actively exhibited in Pasadena and Laguna Beach, two of the cities in which he lived.  An Impressionist, he’s remembered for his California landscapes and marine paintings.
