Luigi Kasimir

Luigi Kasimir was born in 1881 in Pettau, Yugoslavia, now Slovenia. He is considered one of the early pioneers in color printing. Kasimir studied under William Unger at the Vienna Academy of Art where he was introduced to the color printing process. Before the technique of adding color to the plate, etchings were generally hand colored. Kasimir would transfer the design from a colored sketch, usually a pastel, onto a number of plates, printing them in succession and applying the color onto the plate by hand. His work was generally architectural in scope, being tourist landmarks, street scenes, city skyscrapers, and wonderful Alpine landscapes. Most of his scenes were done in Europe, the United States, and England. After his death, his wife, Tanna Hoernes, and son, Robert Kasimir, continued to carry on the tradition of color printing with etching.
