A fine color etching, "Park Avenue", circa 1929, by the noted Austro-Hungarian etcher, painter, and printmaker Luigi Kasimir (1881-1962). The scarce vintage print is in apparent excellent condition (not examined out of frame). Measurements are 17 3/4" by 11 1/4" inside the mat, 26" by 19" framed. Kasimir is known today largely for his prints of street and city scenes in both Europe and America, rendered in fine detail, as color etchings, a process in which he was a pioneer. Whereas previously, color was hand-applied to a black and white print, with color etching, several plates were employed, each printing a specific color. Many of Kasimir's works feature scenes in Austria or Germany; his American scenes, of San Francisco, Yosemite, New York City, are more sought-after and less common. Some encountered are pencil signed by the ESTATE, with "na" (Nachlass, or, studio) before a pencil signature. This example is signed by the artist himself during his lifetime. The print is exceptionally clean. An old gallery label of Krumbholz Fine Art, Milwaukee, remains on the backing. Frame has light wear.
