   A genration after her death, German artist Kathe Kollwitz is winning a reputation as one of the great graphic artists of the 20th Century. Concentrating on the more "democratic" media-especially etchings, lithographs, posters, and woodcuts, as well as sculpture and bronze reliefs-Kollwitz always created for the people, rather than for the upper class collector. Unlike the volputuous odalisques so often depicted by male artists, Kollowitz's women are joyous or grief stricken, thoughtful or shielding mothers; forlorn, pregnant, widows; tender friends; prostitutes; militant pacifists or revolutionaries in action. In her sensitive narrative, Martha Kearns establishes Kollwitz's contributions to western art, and especially to women's art. This original paperback is generously illustrated with many striking, seldom-see reproductions from private collections, assembled in one volume for the first time.

Review: Kathe Kollwitz: Woman and Artist

User Review  - MG Sanchez - Goodreads

A short but powerful book on one of the most remarkable women of the twentieth century. My one slight criticism is that it could have done with more illustrations. Other than that - a fine effort! Read full review
