Mr. Shae Avery's Biography

   You are cordially invited to a special showing of "Architectural Art of Luigi Kasimir" on Friday, April 1, from 5 - 9 pm at Avery Gallery in Marietta, GA. 

 
    Luigi Kasimir's etchings have been popular in this country for nearly 100 years.  His images portray some wonderful examples of architectural work from Europe and the USA.

    Born in 1881, he witnessed massive changes occurring in the world.  With his etchings he documented the old and the new.

   Black and white etchings have been popular for hundreds of years, but Luigi Kasimir was among the first to fully develop the technique of color etching. Before him, etchings were usually hand colored, often with less than perfect color application, or color etchings were printed from a single plate.

   Kasimir first did a sketch from nature, usually in pastel. Then he transferred the design by hand on as many as two to six plates, printing one after the other by hand, applying the color on each plate by hand so each finished etching is a true original.

    Luigi Kasimir became world renowned during his lifetime, first throughout Europe, where Sigmund Freud and many others collected his work, and later in the United States, where he created iconic images of New York skyscrapers, famous bridges and natural wonders like Yosemite Valley. Kasimir died in 1962 in Grinzing, Austira, leaving his equally accomplished wife Tanna and son Robert to carry on the artistic legacy of the Kasimir name.
