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.

This beautiful Luigi Kasimir depicts the famous Vienna State Opera which has been a center for the arts since the mid 19th century. This is a rare artist proof etching which no more than 5-10 would have been printed. Finding one of Kasimir's original artist proof etchings is very rare as the majority are held in collections and museums or have been lost to time. The condition is excellent besides a minimal matt burn. Their are no rips, tears, creases, folds or slight surface scratches. This has been well taken care of over the years especially considering this is getting close to 100 years old. The print has been mounted to a thin cardboard and has remains of an older matting in the top margin.
