About

Hand-signed and numbered (147/250) color etching by Luigi Kasimir published in 1930s. Kasimir was born 1881 in Pettau (Germany), today Slovenia. He is noted for his etchings of European and American cities and landmarks throughout the world. His portrayal of Fleet Street is one of his finest works. Kasimir is known for further refining the technique of color etching with the technique, à la poupée, with which color is applied to the etching plate before each individual sheet would be printed and pulled by hand by the artist. Through his perfecting the à la poupée technique Kasimir achieved a rich and complex coloration in his etchings that was well suited to capture the hustle and bustle of Fleet Street when it was the home of London Newspapers of the late 1920s and 1930s. We see a crowded narrow street overflowing with people, cars, commercial carts, and an overcrowded double decker bus. In the background St. Paul's Cathedral towers majestically over the colorful street scene. Framed in acid-free mat and a gold and dark grey frame (28.5 x 23 inches). Thank for
