This biography from the Archives of AskART:
An expedition artist, Wilhelm Gottlief Tilesius von Tilenau traveled with the George Heinrich von Langsdorff (1773-1852) of the Rezanov Expedition from Russia to California as the illustrator.   In 1806, they were in San Francisco, and drawings by von Tilenau were used by Von Langsdorff as engravings in his book, Observations On a Journey Around the World, published in Frankfurt Germany in 1812.

One of the sketches he did in California from that voyage was Dance of the Indians at the Mission of St. Joseph in New California.
