“Käthe Kollwitz: Prints, Process, Politics” is on view at the Getty Center (Research Institute Galleries I and II) in Los Angeles, CA from December 3 through March 29, 2020. 

From the Getty’s web site: “Käthe Kollwitz, one of the foremost graphic artists of the 20th century, is celebrated for her affecting portrayals of the hardships of war, poverty, and injustice and for her technical virtuosity. A selection of works on paper from the Dr. Richard A. Simms Collection at the Getty Research Institute—including rare preparatory drawings, working proofs, and trial prints—sheds light on Kollwitz's creative process and reveals the depth of her social and political engagement.”
