Kollwitz's work is astounding. I've been to the Kollwitz museum in Cologne - stunning stuff but harrowing, raw emotion in every line & brush stroke. Good to see her work again.

Hi Oscar! Just discovered this blog. What a wonderful treasure trove you're sharing with us! These Kollwitz drawings are stunning! I loved the Daniel Melgarejo illustrations you posted back in March!

Thanks so much for posting these!

Sabes porque me gusta Kathe, Gustavo. Aparte de su espectacular habilidad no hay UN SOLO GRAMO DE CAMELO NI DE AUTO JUSTIFICACION EN LO QUE HACE. Iba al frente, nomas...Derecho viejo!!

Tha, Knife...I love Kathe's work becase there is not a gram of bulshit in her work..Skill, compassion and decency...Roll over Tracy Emin!

"Skill, compassion and decency" the values they say are "demodé" nowdays. Expressionism? Too direct, too naif!
I have a book with his drawings and love her too.

Rare indeed.
And very beautiful.
She put her heart, soul and her life on the line.

SIEMPRE ME DESLUMBRARON LOS DIBUJOS ABOCETADOS, QUE A MI ENTENDER, MARCAN EL TALENTO. LO DEMÁS SE PUEDE CONSEGUIR CON SANGRE SUDOR Y TIEMPO. EL PRIMER BOCETITO, ES GENIAL, OJO. TODO LO DEMÁS TAMBIÉN.

Cierto, Oscar y pienso que precisamente eso es dificilísimo de lograr, y más aún cuando se tiene una habilidad como la de Kathe.
Hace unos años estuve contemplando un autorretrato de Kathe ( ya anciana ) al carboncillo...im-pre-sio-nan-te!!!
