This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Furth, Germany on April 23, 1855.  Reichardt (aka Reichard) immigrated to the U.S. in 1865.  He studied art in NYC before moving to San Francisco in 1894.  At his studio at 25 Post Street he specialized in painting portraits from photographs.  During this period his copy of Grace Hudson's Little Mendocino  caused quite a stir when exhibited in his studio window.  When not in his studio, he made painting forays into northern California.  Reichardt was also a photographer and in 1895 obtained a patent for a device that made prints on wood.  He did a chromolithograph of the San Francisco fire of 1906.  After the disaster he moved across the bay to Alameda and established a studio in his home.  He died at his daughter's home in Hayward, CA on April 21, 1948.
