This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Born in San Francisco, California and raised in the North Beach area, Rinaldo Cuneo was a painter of landscape, still lifes, city views and still lifes, and muralist who, commissioned by the Federal Art Project adminstrators, painted murals in Coit Tower in San Francisco in 1934. His studio and cottage in San Francisco, later in his career, had a panoramic view of the bay from Telegraph Hill.

His family were painters including two of his brothers, Cyrus and Egisto Cuneo, and several family members were founders of the Tivoli Opera Company in San Francisco.

He served in the Spanish-American War and then studied at the Mark Hopkins Institute of Art with Arthur Mathews and Gottardo Piazzoni.  He then went to London where he joined his brother Cyrus and also studied in Paris at the Académie Colarossi.

In 1913, he had his first exhibition, which was held at the Helgesen Gallery in San Francisco, and in 1916 and 1917, he worked with a tug boat service at San Anselmo.  He also pursued his painting interests, and in 1928, he took a painting trip to Arizona.

Edan Hughes, Artists in California, 1786-1940

Biography from William A. Karges Fine Art - Beverly Hills:
Born in San Francisco to a family of artists, Cuneo studied at the Mark Hopkins Institute with Arthur Mathews, before attending the Academie Colarossi in Paris from 1911-1913.  Upon his return to California, Cuneo’s works were well received at the Panama Pacific International Exhibition in 1915, and was involved in every major art exhibition in the San Francisco area from 1916-1939.  Also during these years Cuneo was the subject of numerous one-man shows, including those in Rome, Los Angeles, London, and Paris.

Called “the Painter of San Francisco,” at the inaugural exhibition of the San Francisco Museum of Art in 1935, Cuneo had the most number of paintings displayed by any early California artist.  In that same exhibition, his painting California Hills won the Museum’s Purchase Prize award.

A pure impressionist early in his career, Cuneo’s style constantly evolved throughout his life, as he was always seeking and assimilating new methods of representation.
