Kâthe Kollwitz (German, 1867-1945)

The work of Kâthe Kollwitz, a Prussian artist, is of Social Protest: her focus was the common man and woman. She created a series of etchings, The Weavers Revolt, from 1884-98 based on the peasants' strike of 1844, and a second series, Peasant Wars, from 1902-1908. After 1920, she was increasingly involved in workers movements, creating the woodcut series War from 1922-23 and Proletariat in 1925. Her tender images of mothers with children focused on the needs of working-class families.
