About

Original color, hand-signed etching by Luigi Kasimir (1881 -1962) published in 1930s. Kasimir was born in Pettau (Germany), today Slovenia. He is noted for his etchings of European and American cities and landmarks throughout the world. Kasimir further refined the technique of color etching known as à la poupée, with which color is applied to the etching plate before each individual sheet is printed and hand-pulled by the artist. Kasimir achieved a rich and complex coloration in his etchings that was well suited to capture iconic monuments and historic architecture of a number of American cities, including Philadelphia, New York, Boston and Chicago. He was one of the most prolific color etchers throughout the 1930s and post-World War II era. Both his etchings and watercolors are to be found in Museum and private collections throughout Europe and the United States. Image size 17 3/4 x 14 inches; Sheet 23 1/2 x 19 inches
