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 his scenes ranging from the Vienna Opera House, to New York's sky scrappers, and even too landscapes of Yosemite National Park.

This beautiful Luigi Kasimir etching depicts the famous London Bridge which is one of the most iconic structures in London Today. This is a rare limited edition etching from the first run of prints and numbered as seen in the lower left corner "116/250". Finding Kasimir's original limited edition etchings is very rare as the majority are held in collections and museums especially from so early in the edition as this is. The condition is good but the image does have some small knicks and scratches as well as the margins. Their is also some slight creases along the top margin as seen in the last photo. This etching is not framed and will be shipped unframed.
