Portrait of the Artist: Käthe Kollwitz

  • Friday 10 November 2017
    (12.00pm - 2.00pm)

The visit to the exhibition includes a 45-minute talk about the artist by the gallery’s Head of Learning, Linzi Stauvers, followed by a guided tour of the exhibition.

‘Käthe Kollwitz (née Schmidt, 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 later sculpture. This exhibition focuses on around forty works from the British Museum’s remarkable print collection, alongside material drawn from other UK public collections. The exhibition highlights the importance of Kollwitz’s work and celebrates the enduring impact of her powerful and affecting images.’ (IKON Gallery exhibition notes)

Käthe Kollwitz’s work is rarely seen in the UK – an opportunity not to be missed.
