New insights into the work of Käthe Kollwitz
The Käthe Kollwitz Museum Köln has the worldwide largest collection of the artist’s works and one of its objectives is to open up new access paths to her art and to illustrate the high artistic quality of her drawings, graphic art and sculptural works. The focal points of this research activity are – along with the publication of catalogues on special exhibitions – the editing and updating of the catalogues raisonnées. This is the groundwork for all further research.
In March 2016, the first catalogue raisonée of Kollwitz’ sculptural work was published by Hirmer Verlag, Munich. The corresponding online catalogue was published in May 2016 - and the first update in February 2019. Read more
