Woman with Dead Child Kathe Kollwtiz

While researching Kathe Kollwitz I noticed all of her pieces of artwork showed figures of faces with intense emotion on their faces.  The drawing I chose was a piece she did in 1903 an etching.  The piece is called Woman with Dead Child.  The picture is of a seated, cross-legged, naked woman olds the body of a child.  All though this drawing at first is difficult to see, you can see the emotion through the eyebrows on the woman’s face.  This etching was one of a series of drawings, charcoals, and etchings titled “Woman with Dead Child” produced in 1903.  The series of work was associated with “Pieta” Mary mourning her son.
