Käthe Kollwitz was born July 8, 1867, in Konigsberg, East Prussia (now Kalinigrad, Russia). She devoted herself primarily to graphic art after 1890. Her first important works were two separate series of prints, Weavers' Revolt and Peasants' War. The death of her youngest in 1914 led to another cycle of prints of a mother protecting her children. Her last great series of lithographs was Death.
