KÄTHE KOLLWITZ : PORTRAIT OF THE ARTIST
Sep 13 - Nov 26, 2017
Käthe Kollwitz (née Schmidt, 1867–1945) was one of the leading artists of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, notable for the emotional power of her drawing, printmaking and later sculpture. This exhibition focuses on around forty works from the British Museum’s remarkable print collection, alongside material drawn from other UK public collections. The exhibition highlights the importance of Kollwitz’s work and celebrates the enduring impact of her powerful and affecting images.
