Despite the realism of her early works, her art is now more closely associated with Expressionism.Kollwitz was the first woman elected to the Prussian Academy of Arts.

Notice the straight lines and lack of curves which adds to the negativity in the painting.

 

I will be using this technique in my own art-work in a later post.
