From 1903 to 1908, Kathë Kollwitz produced The Peasant War Cycle, a seven-print series that reveals the brutal treatment of peasants in sixteenth century Germany, their rise to revolution and battle, and their subsequent death and humiliation.
Although based on historic events, the series anticipates tragedies that soon took shape across Europe. This exhibition is curated by German major Courtney Rogers. Materials for this exhibition are available in English and German.
