Summary "With her great cycles of graphic works 'Ein Weberaufstand"' (A Weavers' Revolt) and 'Bauernkrieg' (The Peasants' War), Käthe Kollwitz demonstrated her skills as a graphic artist at an early stage in a remarkable manner. From the start of her career her etchings, lithographs and woodcuts were included in the collections of renowned art institutes. Her fame as an artist grew steadily and was acknowledged by countless awards. In 1919 she was even the first woman to be appointed professor by the Prussian Academy of Arts. This new monograph presents with unprecedented density the life and work of Käthe Kollwitz, one of the most important German woman artists of Classic Modernism."--Publisher's website.
