Käthe Kollwitz (1867-1945) was a painter, printmaker and sculptor, and is one of Germany’s most revered artists. Kollwitz’s work illustrates the poverty, war and social injustices of the time. Regarded as a “rebel” because of her work and political beliefs, she was threatened by the Gestapo in 1936. Kollwitz was a passionate artist and remains a controversial political figure. Her work is an enduring testament to her sense of duty as an artist.
