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.

This etching entitled "Hamburg, Binnenalster" is a stunning city scape of Hamburg Germany over the famous Binnenalster lake. This city scape is in exceptional condition and the overall quality makes you feel like your standing in front of the lake looking out over the city. The etching has been mounted to the board that backs it, but this is common among Kasimir's works. The impression is crisp and the colors are bright and un-touched by harmful UV light. The frame is a wonderful gold wood in great shape making this ready to be hung and enjoyed in either your home or ones collection! Kasimir's works are some of my favorite and it's easy to see why in this rare original etching.
