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.

"San Francisco Bay from Coit Tower" is one of the few rare American cityscapes that Kasimir completed during his stay in the 1930's. This is an original hand colored etching on hand wove cream paper measuring 13 1/4 x 10 1/4 inches and signed "Luigi Kasimir" in the bottom center. This etching has its original bright colors and a clear, crisp impression. The view of San Francisco is from the Coit Tower, also known as the Lillian Coit Memorial Tower, in the Telegraph Hill neighborhood standing an impressive 210ft tall.

The condition of this etching is excellent besides some minor yellow specks in the lower margin. This etching has not been glued down or dry mounted. Luigi's American etchings are of his most desirable and this is a good example. Mounted in a vintage wood frame and double matted makes it ready to be hung in one's home or collection.The details in the city are just wonderful and incredible to think about the time and effort put into creating these scenes using an etching process on a copper plate.
