KATHE KOLLWITZ (German / 1867-1945)

Käthe Kollwitz was born Käthe Schmidt in Königsberg in 1867. She made her initial studies at an art school for women in Berlin, where her teacher was Karl Stauffer-Bern; she then went to the Women's Art School in Munich. She is widely recognised as one of the most important etchers of her day. The art of Käthe Kollwitz expresses a profound sympathy with the lives of the poor, as in her early masterworks for the series The Revolt of the Weavers.
