This biography from the Archives of AskART:
An expedition artist and engraver who was one of the earliest artist explorers of the California coast, Georg Heinrich von Langsdorff was born in Germany.   He became a member of the Russian expedition led by Nikolai Rezanov, and by 1806, they were in San Francisco. 

The Bancroft Library has drawings from that expedition, and one of them, a scene of the presidio from the expedition ship, is the earliest known view of San Francisco.  Another drawing, done farther down the coast, is titled Dance of The Indians at Misson San Jose.

von Langsdorff did a book with engravings of his expedition experiences, Observations On a Journey Around the World, which was published in Frankfurt, Germany in 1812.
