Selbstbildnis im Profil nach rechts (Self-Portrait in Profile towards Right), 1938

Not on Viewexpand_more

Kollwitz created numerous self-portraits throughout her career, including this one completed when she was 71 years old. In the last two decades of her life, the artist turned increasingly to the medium of lithography, which she uses here with great ease. This particular print was not signed by the artist, but by her son Hans Kollwitz. He annotated the work, "from the estate of KŠthe Kollwitz."
