Description:
The second plate from the artist’’’’s The Peasant’’’’s War series, this visual narrative suggests that it is this rape depicted that provokes the peasant’’’’s to rebel. A densely worked image, it is easy to overlook the body, covered in blood, which seems to have succumbed to the earth’’’’s grasp. Almost indistinguishable from the foliage in the background is a young girl, her head bowed in grief. In a letter to Georg Stolterforth in 1908, Kollwitz said of this print: "It is just finished. It is an abducted woman, who after the devastation of her cottage is left lying in the herb garden, while her child, who had run away, looks over the fence." Executed in 1907 and printed in 1921, this etching, aquatint and soft-ground etching is signed and dated. Published by Emil Richter, this edition is from Klipstein’’’’s state VIB of VII; another work from this state is in the permanent collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. The plate measures 11 ⅞ x 20 ⅗ inches. In overall good condition with no evidence of tears or repairs. The German painter, printmaker and sculptor Käthe Kollwitz was born in Königsberg in Prussia. Her works are mostly inspired by personal experiences and circumstances and are marked by a special and partly frightening seriousness and realism. Kollwitz was one of the well-known members of the artist’’’’s organization of the ‘Berliner Secession’’’’. Her works are not only part of well-known collections such as of the MoMA in New York but of entire museums dedicated to the artist in Berlin, Cologne and Dresden. Käthe Kollwitz is one of the best known, German artists of the 20th century.

(and similar) (4) Knesebeck 126 VII c (of VII d) “I felt that I have no right to withdraw from the responsibility of being an advocate. It is my duty to voice the sufferings of people, the sufferings that never end and are as big as mountains.” Käthe Kollwitz The etchings and lithographs of Käthe Kollwitz simultaneously captured the human sentiment at its most raw and tender. The artist sought to celebrate not only the humanity, but also the struggles of the proletariat; finding inspiration from the poorest of citizens attending her husband’’’’s medical clinic. Living through political upheavals and the horrors of two World Wars, her own anguishes were documented by her successive self-portraits, yet Kollwitz continued to give a voice to those whom could so easily have been forgotten.
