From 1903 to 1908, Käthe Kollwitz created plates for 'Bauernkrieg/Peasant War', a series of etchings that represents the brutal treatment of peasants in sixteenth-century Germany, their rise to revolution and battle and their subsequent humiliation and death. Although based on historic events, she used this series as a vehicle to criticize and protest the anticipated tragedies that unfolded across Europe during the first half of the twentieth-century. This exhibition, on loan to the Phillips Museum of Art from the permanent collection of Dickinson College's Trout Gallery, was curated by Dickinson College German major Courtney Rogers '17. The exhibition materials for this exhibition are available in both English and German.
