Kathe Kollwitz

December 1993
Paperback

From Library Journal
This monograph, prepared to accompany a striking exhibition, provides important information on the life and art of one of the 20th century's most influential figurative artists. Kollwitz's brutally unadorned social commentary, with particular reference to the atrocities of Nazi Germany, continues to have the power to touch many viewers. The English-language text of this scholarly work is particularly useful, because most publications on Kollwitz are in German--the notable exception being the translated catalogue raisonne by Tom Fecht, Kathe Kollwitz: Works in Color (Schocken, 1988). Prelinger's insightful reappraisal of Kollwitz's aesthetic values and techniques are accompanied by Alessandra Comini's and Hildegard Bachert's fine essays. Even more than the good-quality plates, this book's text and its survey of...


Kathe Kollwitz: Woman and Artist

Book Description
A generation after her death, German artist Käthe Kollwitz is winning a reputation as one of the great graphic artists of the 20th century. Concentrating on the more democratic media — especially etchings, lithographs, posters, and woodcuts, as well as sculpture and bronze reliefs — Kollwitz always created for the people, rather than for the upper-class collector. Kollwitz’s women are joyous or grief-stricken, thoughtful or shielding mothers; forlorn, pregnant widows; tender friends; prostitutes; militant pacifists or revolutionaries in action. Martha Kearns establishes Kollwitz’s contributions with many striking, seldom-seen reproductions from private collections, assembled in one volume for the first time.

The Diary and Letters of Kaethe Kollwitz
Hans Kollwitz (Editor)
0810107619
June 1989
Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
Kollwitz's art is well known, but little has been written on her life. This publication introduces the private person through diary entries revealing the struggles of a woman who was master and servant of her art, who probed her roles as wife and mother, and who sought joy in a life that took her son in World War I and her grandson in World War II. A victim of Hitler's censorship, Kollwitz speaks of the need to combine the politics of humanity and art. Her letters are more light-hearted and punctuated with hope and happy memories. Recommended for collections emphasizing art history and women's studies.

...a book that explains...the psychological, economic and even aesthetic reasons for the virtually unchallenged patriarchalism of all our artistic establishments.

Review
It is everything we might have wished: passionate yet lucid, clear yet complex, deeply researched yet not pedantic. It is a book that explains, better than any I have ever read, the psychological, economic and even aesthetic reasons for the virtually unchallenged patriarchalism of all our artistic establishments.
