Luigi Kasimir is an incredibly well known artists and has been very prominent in the American art market for over 40 years. He was born in Pettau in Germany in 1881 and died 1962 in Vienna Austria. Luigi had art in his blood as his grandfather was a poet and artist, also his dad was an artist post his military career. Luigi went to the Vienna Academy of Art studying under William Unger who first introduced him to the etching process. He was a pioneer in the process of color etchings because they were all done by hand after the impression leaving a "sloppy" look, Luigi placed the color first on the plate, so when it was impressed it would already have the color. This eliminated the post impression hand coloring and offered a more natural clean look. Since then Luigi has become a world renowned artist and his pieces sit in countless museums and galleries around the world. He is famous for piece from the Vienna Opera House, to New York's sky scrappers, and even the landscapes of Yosemite National Park.

"St. Charles Church" in Vienna is one of the few beloved etchings that Kasimir completed of Vienna which was his home for a significant amount of time. This is an original hand colored etching on hand wove cream paper measuring 18 3/4 x 22 inches and signed "Luigi Kasimir" on the lower right just inside the plate mark. This etching has its original bright colors and a clear, crisp impression. What really separates this etching from the majority is that this is a 1st edition print as identified by the numbered edition "110 of 150" hand written in pencil in the lower left corner. Kasimir only numbered the first run of a particular print and most a belovedly hidden away in private collections. The majority of his etching on the market and that come up for sale are part of his 2nd runs and are not numbered being part of an open edition. The details are beautiful and the condition is very good being a early clean, crisp impression. This etching has been laid down to a board and has suffered some even toning. Their is a slight mark of discoloration on the right margin and slight loss to the top left corner of the margin as seen in the last two photos. This print comes unframed.
