Käthe Kollwitz: Prints, Process, Politics
This exhibition highlights extraordinary drawings and prints by Käthe Kollwitz (German, 1867–1945) from the Getty Research Institute’s Dr. Richard A. Simms Collection. Kollwitz created unforgettable scenes of struggling workers, rebellious peasants, and grieving mothers in series of works that reveal her innovative technical and formal experiments. Kollwitz’s commitment to showing the effects of war and poverty and her dedication to the creative process have made her one of the most compelling graphic artists of the 20th century.
