About

Luigi Kasimir (1881-1962) was born in Pettau, then a part of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy. He attended the Vienna Academy of Art where he studied color etching, a technique Kasimir would further develop throughout his career. Before him etchings were usually hand colored or printed from just one plate). Kasimir would first do a sketch from nature, usually in pastel. He then transferred the design by hand on as many as four to six different etching plates, printing one after the other by hand and hand applying the color to each plate. Kasimir became one of the most proficient and prolific color etchers of the 20th century producing town and country views throughout Europe and the United States. In pursuit of his art Luigi was also assisted by his wife, Tanna Kasimir-Hoernes, and his son, Robert, who became highly adept with his father's technique. Following his father's death Robert continued to produce (as estate imprints identified in his pencilled signature) many of his father's images, including New York, Columbia University. Image size: 14.50 x 18 inches. Sheet size 21 x 24
