Käthe Kollwitz ~ Self-Portrait, 1921 (etching) Kollwitz's work is about the human condition and the tragedy of war. Her dark and pained artwork conveys an atmosphere that could lend itself well to a student who wanted to look at addiction.

Kathe Kollwitz, Sitting woman with crossed arms, 1904  Can't think of a single way to make this better.  I adore Kathe Kollwitz.

Kathe Kollwitz. I used to think Kathe Kolwitz was a bit too rough. Today, she is one of my favorite artists with the towering expressiveness and simplicity of her artwork in all media. She truly stands alone between the "isms" of the 20th century drowned in their endless explanations and the ivory towers of classicism searching for the rightfully dead elites.
