Käthe Kollwitz by Elizabeth Prelinger( Book )

18 editions published in 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few artists are as universally beloved as the German printmaker, draftsman, and sculptor Kathe Kollwitz, whose powerful images of mothers and children and of protest against social injustice have long been admired by both critics and the public. Kollwitz, a woman in a field dominated by men, steadfastly adhered to a figurative style in the era of abstraction and depicted socially engaged subject matter when it was unfashionable. Kollwitz is largely known through political posters and restrikes of her prints. Her reputation has to some extent been dominated by an emphasis on the social content of her work, often at the expense of her remarkable artistic skills. The present study challenges that view by focusing on the artistic aspect of her achievement. The book consists of three essays on Kollwitz. Elizabeth Prelinger provides a reassessment of Kollwitz as an artist; Alessandra Comini presents a richly atmospheric discussion of the artist's life in Berlin during the tumultuous period that spanned two world wars; and Hildegard Bachert surveys the reception of Kollwitz in Germany and the United States as manifested in collections of her works. The volume, which includes a selection of the finest examples of Kollwitz' oeuvre, juxtaposes preparatory drawings with finished art, illustrating the arduous experimental processes by which she attained her brilliant results. Themes important to Kollwitz--such as self-portraits, social activism as illustrated in the cycles A Weavers' Rebellion and Peasants' War, love and death, nudes, workers, war and revolution--are explored in depth in all media. The book will serve as the catalogue for an exhibition of Kollwitz' prints, drawings, and works of sculpture at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, from May 3 to August 26, 1992

One of the great German Expressionist artists, Kaethe Kollwitz wrote little of herself. But her diary, kept from 1900 to her death in 1945, and her brief essays and letters express, as well as explain, much of the spirit, wisdom, and internal struggle which was eventually transmuted into her art
Ich sah die Welt mit liebevollen Blicken = ein Leben in Selbstzeugnissen by Käthe Kollwitz( Book )

43 editions published between 1962 and 2017 in German and Undetermined and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Grafikerin und Bildhauerin Käthe Kollwitz zählt zu den bekanntesten deutschen Künstlerinnen des 20. Jahrhunderts. Von ihren Zeitgenossen hoch geschätzt und 1919 als erste Frau in die Preußische Akademie der Künste gewählt, war sie 1933 weit über Deutschlands Grenzen hinaus anerkannt und musste doch erleben, dass ihre Kunst von den Nationalsozialisten aus der Öffentlichkeit verbannt wurde. In ihren Bildwerken ging es immer um das Leben, immer gegen Krieg und Gewalt. Ihre Tagebücher, in denen sie uns auf anrührende Weise Einblick in ihr Privatleben, in ihre Rolle als Mutter, Ehefrau und Künstlerin, in ihre Ansichten über Malerei und Politik gibt, rechnete Theodor Heuss zu den 'wenigen und wohl bleibenden Veröffentlichungen dieser Gattung'

7 editions published in 2011 in German and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Im Mittelpunkt der Ausstellung und dieser begleitenden Publikation steht das Schaffen von Käthe Kollwitz (1867 – 1945). Das Werk dieser außergewöhnlichen Künstlerin ist bestimmt von erschütternden Themen wie Tod, Hunger und Krieg. Ihr schonungslos ehrlicher Blick konfrontiert den Betrachter mit den Schrecken und Grausamkeiten des Krieges, appelliert jedoch zugleich an dessen Mitgefühl und Menschlichkeit. Die Staatsgalerie Stuttgart verfügt mit einem Bestand von rund 100 Zeichnungen und Druckgraphiken über eine der international wichtigsten Kollwitz-Sammlungen, die seit über 40 Jahren erstmals wieder vollständig präsentiert wird. Die ausgestellten Arbeiten, darunter das eindrucksvolle frühe »Selbstbildnis« von 1892 sowie ihre letzte Lithographienfolge »Tod« (1934/1935), zeigen sämtliche Facetten ihres künstlerischen Schaffens. Ergänzt wird die Ausstellung von Werken ihrer Zeitgenossen aus den Jahren 1914 bis 1945. Neben Gemälden von Max Beckmann, Ludwig Meidner, Otto Dix und George Grosz wird die aufrüttelnde Folge von Radierungen »Der Krieg« (1924) von Otto Dix ebenso wie die selten gezeigte Lithographienserie »Die Verdammten« (1945) von Otto Hermann zu sehen sein. Die existentiellen Themen und das wiederkehrende Motiv der Sinnlosigkeit des Krieges stellen damit das Werk von Käthe Kollwitz in den Kontext ihrer Zeit
