Kathe Kollwitz: Einundzwanzig Zeichnungen der spaten Jahre
Gebr. Mann, Berlin, 1948. Folio. 21 matted prints with printed booklet, housed in a portfolio of printed quarter cloth and printed papercovered boards. Prints are fine, very slight soiling on the portfolio, very near fine. German artist Kollwitz (1867-1945) most often expressed her social conscience and pacifism through her lithographs, etchings and sculpture. Two of her more famous cycles of work, *The Weavers* and *Peasant War*, dramatize through art the historical suffering of the lowest classes. In 1920 she became the first woman elected into the Prussian Academy of Arts. There are two museums in Germany dedicated solely to her works and she is the subject of one chapter of William T. Vollmann's *Europe Central* which won the National Book Award in 2005. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
