Käthe Kollwitz German
Not on view
Kollwitz’s experience as a mother was central to her artwork and advocacy. She created this lithograph of an exhausted mother physically sheltering her infant and toddler during the interwar period to raise awareness of the struggles of war widows and the poor. The print was distributed as the annual edition for the members of the Leipzig Art Association.
