She is the most famous German woman artist of the twentieth century and yet an exception: Käthe Kollwitz (1867–1945). From 20 March to 9 June 2024, the Städel Museum is devoting a comprehensive exhibition to Käthe Kollwitz, presenting her in all her diversity, expressive power, and modernity. She boldly chose prints and drawings as her essential media, finding in them an independent visual language of great immediacy. From a new perspective, her art addressed existential human questions and was therefore politically appropriated by many attitudes and issues in post-war Germany.

The Städel Museum has an extensive collection of works by Käthe Kollwitz, including almost all of the prints published in editions, as well as prints and drawings reworked by hand. The exhibition at the Städel Museum presents more than 110 impressive works on paper, sculptures, and early paintings by the artist from this remarkable collection as well as from leading museums and Kollwitz collections.
