“All my work hides within it life itself, and it is with life that I contend through my work.” - Käthe Kollwitz

One of the most important and accomplished graphic artists of the 20th century, Kollwitz rendered scenes of immense passion, strength, tenderness and despair in a time of unprecedented political and social upheaval.  Kollwitz’s success as a print artist lead her to unprecedented advances as a female working in a male dominated profession. She was the first woman to be admitted to, and appointed professor, at the Berlin Academy of Art.   Respected for her unmatched intaglio techniques, universal images of social consciousness, and emotional intensity, Kollwitz's remains one of the most sought-after modern print artists at Davidson Galleries.
