Not only does Kathe continue to teach art, she also explores different forms of art such as sketching, sculptures and self portraits. After spending a life dedicated to art, Kathe passes away just before the end of the war in 1945.

Although a large portion of her work focuses on sadness in life, her art that shows life’s happiness is able to capture life’s most treasured moments. Many sculptures and drawings radiate life, happiness and joy.
Answer- Although many of Kollwitz’s art are breathtaking, the piece that I have the strongest reaction to is the Mütter, 1919. This drawing seems to represent a lot of feeling. Each person in the drawing has their own expression. The expression is different for each individual but still portrays the same message.
