Käthe Kollwitz was an early twentieth-century German artist who worked with painting, printmaking (including A printing process created by scratching lines onto the plate, applying ink and then paper..., lithography, and woodcuts) and A 3D (solid) piece of artwork..
She was born in 1867 and died in 1945.
Her work portrays human suffering, she lived through wars and her own son died in World War 1.
She was a Realist and Expressionist.
Expressionists and Bauhaus artists inspired Kollwitz in her ability to show Making something known about yourself, such as emotions, feelings, sexuality or personality... in her artwork. She was also inspired by the etchings of Max Klinger.
Other artists who showed the anguish of war include Otto Dix and Georges Grosz. Dorothea Lange’s famous photo ‘Migrant Mother’ echoes the subject content of Kathe Kollwitz.
