Dance around the Guillotine 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.
Along with the Weavers series, Kollwitz explored other historical themes including this dramatic depiction of the French Revolution from Charles Dicken's 1859 novel.
