I took the back off and i can see a clear plate indentation,indicating an etching.I know he was known for his lithos but he must have done a few etchings ,or can a certain type of litho leave a indentation all the way around ?

ok ,here what i found-There are two circumstances in which lithographs can show an impression mark similar to an intaglio plate mark. The printer may not have changed his scraper to fit a smaller size of stone, with the result that the paper is pressed down round the edges of the stone. Or the artist may have drawn his image close to the edges of the stone, making the wider scraper a necessity and providing an impression mark just outside or even coinciding with the image.

I tend to agree with Shawnster that this is indeed a copper plate print: a colour etching, a technique developed by Luigi Kasimir and popular in pre-war Germany and Belgium (Hebbelinck) for topographical and rather commercial sort of work, though famous post-war artists like Baselitz and Dali have used it too. Its colours, each printed separately from either the same or different plates (up to 6!), are usually brighter and more contrasting than a litho's subtle shades. This Thorsøe was very good at it, I must say!

My Dutch fellow countrymen somehow never took to this technique. I would not know one single Dutch colour etcher. As kids, we used to ask friends to read the German word for it under our Berlin view "Originalfarbradierung" - always a nice tongue-twister!
