Luigi Kasimir

Luigi (Alois Heinrich) Kasimir;1881 - 1962, etcher and painter, born in 1881 in Pettau, Yugoslavia, now Slovenia. Studied at the Vienna Academy of Art under William Unger, who introduced Kasimir to the technique of colored etching. Luigi was one of the first artists to develop the technique of colored etching. From a sketch, usually in pastel, he would transfer the design on to a number of plates, printing each one and applying the color on the plate by hand. The resulting etching is a true original.

The three most famous aquatint artists were from Austria; Luigi Kasimir, T. F. Simon and Hans Figura. Each specialized in European and American city views and landscapes.

An extremely fine etching which is bright with unfaded colours. The image size measuring approximately  23 cms. x 23 cms. (9  x 9 ins)  within a strong plate mark and impression, on a 36 cms x 41 cms. (14 x 16 ins.) with full margins.

Titled in the image and signed in pencil by the artist.
