Self Portrait - Hand on Forehead - KATHE KOLLWITZ
Etching, 1910, Klipstein 106 (iii?/IV), Knesebeck 109 IIc; from the signed and numbered edition of 50. 6 x 5 3/8 in. This is a very fine impression printed on sturdy wove paper. The margins are wide and probably full. The condition is fine apart from old tape adhesive residue on three areas at the edge of the sheet, verso. This edition of fifty was printed before the unsigned edition published in Zeitscrift fur Bildende Kunst and before the engraved text by Richter added in 1920. This outstanding, early self portrait has the signature of Felsing, the printer, in the lower left.
