Käthe Kollwitz German

Not on view

Kollwitz’s experience as a mother was central to her artwork and advocacy. She created this lithograph of a weary mother and sleeping boy at the height of her career during the interwar period. The Berlin publishing firm Künstler-Selbsthilfe issued the print to raise funds for financially strained artists.
