DESCRIPTION

Images of Death and Life

This is a survey exhibition of prints by renowned German artist Käthe Kollwitz (1867 – 1945). Kollwitz is famous for both her empathic humanity and mordant social commentary, represented through an unmistakable graphic style. This exhibit, curated by Assistant Director Peter Olson, brings together prints from Illinois and Midwest collections.
