Print

Venice, Grand Canal
1881-1962, Austrian

Color etching and aquatint by Luigi Kasimir measuring 18 x 23 1/2 inches, pencil signed, cat: Lorenze #63, c. 1923, edition 300. Kasimir studied at the Vienna Academy of Art, although much of his etching technique was self taught and learned through working from nature. He specialized in atmospheric images of architecture, city scenes and landscapes; some bustling with people and automobiles, others quite timeless and serene. Kasimir developed his own technique, which was much more suited to the particular clarity of his compositions.
