Luigi Kasimir is an incredibly well known artists and has been prominent in the American art market for over 40 years. He was born in Pettau, Germany in 1881 and died 1962 in Vienna Austria. Luigi had art in his blood as his grandfather was a poet and artist, his dad was also 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 colored by hand after the impression was made leaving a "sloppy" look. Luigi placed the color first on the plate, so when it was impressed it would already have color creating a realistic / rustic aesthetic. 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 his scenes ranging from the Vienna Opera House, to New York's sky scrappers, and even to the western landscapes of Yosemite National Park and New Mexico.

This beautiful Luigi Kasimir etching depicting The Brooklyn Bridge is arguably his most desirable composition of the United States images even over his European body of work. With the staggering Manhattan skyline though an almost veil of mist towering over the most famous American bridge during New York's golden age. The condition is very good with minimal discoloration, this print fortunately has not been glued down or dry mounted and has just two small acid free conservation tape on its verso. This etching is quite a striking image with the only real imperfection being a tiny crease like / abrasion to the paper that is located in the upper right portion of the print in the sky. This appears to have been on the paper even before the image was printed, does not show verso. The margins have minimal handling marks. The images provided accurately represent the condition, quality and aesthetic beauty of this fine, desirable Kasimir etching but if you have any questions please feel free to ask prior to purchasing!
