Born in Russia under the maiden name Schmidt, KĂ¤the Kollwitz studied art in Berlin. There she met and married Dr. Karl Kollwitz, who ran a childrenÂ’s clinic in a poverty-stricken neighborhood. This environment stemmed the social messages in KollwitzÂ’s paintings. She created a monument in Flanders to the soldiers who died in World War I, after her son was killed in battle. In 1928, Kollwitz was the first woman to admitted to the Prussian Academy of Arts, but s the Nazis forced her withdrawal in 1933. Ten years later, most of her work was destroyed in an air raid. However, from what was left of her powerfully social works, she is remembered for her carvings and bronze sculpture.
