Luigi Kasimir (1881-1962) was an etcher, painter, and landscape artist. Kasimir was born in 1881 in Pettau, he followed in the footspets of his grandfather, a painter and a poet, and his father an officer in the Habsburg army, who later became a professional painter. Kasimir studied under William Unger at the Vienna Academy of Art, it was here he developed his techniques in coloured etching
Kasimir was one of the forerunners in coloured etching, he would draw out the subject in pastel which he then transferred onto as many as six printing plates, printing each, different coloured, hand inked plate one after the other.
