About

Rare dry-point Etching by Luigi Lucioni; signed "Louis" Lucioni as the artist signed his very earliest prints. Pencil signature bottom right. Copyright and published by Charles Barmore. Princeton, N.J., early 1920s. Image size 10 3/4 x 7 3/4 inches; Extremely rare first state. On Tan wove paper with strong black etched lines. 17.5 x 10.5 in. plus margins. Condition is excellent. Born in Malnate, Italy, in 1900, Luigi Lucioni became known for his etchings and became one of America's well-known landscape painters, whose work has been noted for its heightened realism and photographic attention to detail. Lucioni immigrated to the United States with his family in 1911. In 1915 he won a competition which allowed him to attend Cooper Union, and he began studying there with William Starkweather. In 1920, he studied with William Auerbach Levy at the National Academy of Design, and in 1922 was the recipient of a Tiffany Foundation Scholarship. The Fellowship enabled him to go back to his homeland in 1924 to study Italian primitives. He responded immediately to the realism of early Renaissance painting, which left a lasting impression on his oil portrait style. Framed with 2 3/4- inch acid-free, ivory mat and one-inch wide, wood frame with antiqued gold finish and beaded inner edge. Outside frame size: 25 x 18n 1/4 inches.
