Luigi Kasimir, Austrian, 1881-1962, "Hamburg Harbor". This is a remarkable original etching and aquatint of Hamburg Harbor in Germany. The image size is 15 5/8 x 22 3/4 inches, published in 1914 in an edition of 100 impressions, pencil signed and numbered. This image is printed using two plates, one in black ink and one in gray ink to create a chiaroscuro effect with beautiful tonal range and rich contrast. Luigi Kasimir studied at the Vienna Academy of Art, although much of his etching technique was self taught and learned through working from nature. Kasimir traveled all over Europe and the United States creating many spectacular etchings. He specialized in atmospheric images of architecture, city scenes and landscapes; some bustling with people and automobiles, others quite timeless and serene.
