Add To Cart

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.

"Aggstein, Castle on the Danube" is a stellar example of Luigi Kasimir's lifelike etchings which he so famously depicts the 12th century Aggstein castle that sits off the Danube River in Wachau, Austria. This etching is an early edition printed in January of 1915 and can be seen by the fact that he Kasimir signed it in the lower right corner which is indicative of his first states. In the lower left margin is a remarque (image just outside the plate) which is uncommonly seen on Luigi's etchings especially further into his career. Another significant attribute to this etching is the fact that it is NOT laid down and or glued to the board backing it, and not glued to the underside of the matting. The etching is resting nicely by just a piece of acid free tape to the board loosely hanging their. Their is some mild toning evenly across the etching and a couple spots in the top left composition as seen in the last two photos. This etching is an incredible early etching depicting the gorgeous Aggstein castle ruins siting nearly 1600 feet above the Danube.
