Käthe Kollwitz - An der kirchenmauer / By the Church wall: Self-Portrait (Kl. 19 VIb). Original etching, 1893. Edition: from the von der Becke edition after 1931 with his drystamp. The face and hands of the subject are clearly modelled upon Kollwitz herself, making this a self-portrait, even though, according to Nagel, its inspiration was a homeless woman sitting by a church.
