Käthe Kollwitz exhibitions in Birmingham

Käthe Kollwitz (1867–1945) was one of the leading artists of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, notable for the emotional power of her drawing, printmaking and sculpture. Ikon gallery in Birmingham is currently holding a retrospective of the artist’s work, to which the Barber Institute has lent two prints. Camilla Smith, lecturer in the history of art at Birmingham University, and I have also curated a display at the Barber, which looks at Kollwitz in context with her contemporaries.

Have a look at my post, here, on Ikon’s blog for more information about Kollwitz and how these two Birmingham exhibitions link together.
