Kathë Kollwitz, Die Gefangenen (The Prisoners), etching, 1908.

The Trout Gallery, Weiss Center for the Arts
Gallery hours: Monday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

From 1903 to 1908, Käthe Kollwitz produced Bauernkrieg (Peasant War), a seven-print series that reveals the brutal treatment of peasants in 16th-century Germany, their rise to revolution and battle and their subsequent humiliation and death. Although based on historic events, the series anticipates tragedies that soon took shape across Europe. This exhibition is curated by German major Courtney Rogers ’17. Works by Kollwitz were selected for The Trout Gallery's collection by student curators, through a new acquisition program.
