Mother with Dead Child by Kathe Kollwitz
A true friend of the working class, Kollwitz derived inspiration from the lives of ordinary men and women. A precocious artist, she did multiple drawings of day to day life and events affecting everyday people and translated these to fine art prints as she matured as an artist, the best of which is seen in this classic portfolio.
Kollwitz' Mother with Dead Child is a moving and powerful portrayal of the ravaging effects of hardship, disease and war on the most vulnerable.
