This sentence, as topical today as it was almost one hundred years ago, is the creed of a great artist. Käthe Kollwitz achieved worldwide respect with her drawings, printed graphics, and sculptures even during her lifetime.
With her great cycles of graphic works Ein Weberaufstand (A Weaver’s Revolt) and Bauernkrieg (The Peasants’ War), Kollwitz demonstrated her remarkable skills as a graphic artist at an early age. From the start of her career, her etchings, lithographs, and woodcuts were included in the collections of renowned art institutes. Her fame as an artist grew steadily and she eventually became the first woman appointed professor by the Prussian Academy of Arts in 1919.
Beautifully illustrated throughout, this monograph offers an extensive overview of the life and work of one of the most important German artists of Classic Modernism.
