Käthe Kollwitz is one of the most important German graphic artists and sculptors of the 20th century. Based on a vast number of studies and sketches, her work focuses on realistic drawings in black and white. Her back catalogue illustrates her consistent style, the artist's attention to detail and a strong sensuality. In the second half of her life, she also worked on the plastic realisation of her ideas.
Based on her own biography, her art deals with themes such as poverty, war and resistance, but also with motherhood, death and aging.
Her works provide insights into worlds of the past and, at the same time, she'd light on remarkably humane issues of life, which are as relevant and touching as ever.
