RINDISBACHER, Peter (1806-1834), born in Upper Emmenthal, Canton Bern (Switzerland).
He received some art training before the Rindisbacher family went to western Canada in 1821. During the five years in the frontier settlement Peter helped to support his family by the sale of drawings and
watercolors which depicted frontier life. The Rindisbachers moved south into Wisconsin in 1826. In 1829 they settled in St. Louis. Peter always recorded his new environments in his paintings.
