Käthe Kollwitz
Etchings
November 10 – December 14, 2002

Käthe Kollwitz, etching This is an exhibition of 26 etchings by the German Expressionist Kathe Kollwitz (1867-1945). During her lifetime, Kollwitz endured with acute sensibility the upheavals that had beset the German state from the beginnings of the social revolution in the late 19th century through two world wars and a depression. Her work records the tragic struggle of these historic events. It is her observance of tyranny and injustice suffered by the poor and her preoccupation with motherhood and death that are the subjects of these compassionate and powerful prints produced between 1892 and 1921.
