The Marientor, Munich

$625.00

A distinctive original etching and aquatint in colors, image size 19 x 18 inches, 1922, cat: Lorenz- 40, pencil signed. 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. This technique allowed Kasimir to create extraordinarily rich tones and values with clear, crisp lines; he could masterfully bring a scene to life using subtle hues of grays and earth tones accentuated by bright splashes of saturated color.
