Von Schneidau received his early education from private tutors and studied at the Stockholm Academy of Fine Art. He immigrated to the U.S. in 1906 and spent the first ten years as a resident of Minnesota. He continued his art studies at the AIC under Reynolds and Buehr, and in the East under H. M. Walcott, C. W. Hawthorne, and Richard Miller. After settling in Los Angeles in 1917, he operated the Von Schneidau School of Fine Art. Married twice, he was the husband of musician Esther Bergman during 1923-31 and in 1938 married one of his pupils, Signe Larson Nelson. During the 1940s he taught at the Businessmen's Art Institute in Los Angeles and in the 1950s spent two years in Alaska. While there, he painted the Eskimos and portraits of governors Heinzelman and Egan. In his later years he taught portraiture at the Bakersfield Art Ass'n. Known primarily as a portraitist, Von Schneidau was equally skilled at landscapes and murals. He died in Orange, CA on Jan. 6, 1976.
