The Käthe Kollwitz Museum is dedicated to the work of German artist Käthe Kollwitz who worked and lived in Berlin for over 50 years.
The museum opened in 1986, and its origins started with the donation of art collector Hans Pels-Leusden who had been collecting Käthe Kollwitz since 1950, and created the first Kollwitz exhibition in 1965. He endowed 95 printed graphics, 40 drawings and 10 original posters to the museum.
The collection contain some self-portraits as well as the woodcut series Krieg, works relating to the theme of Tod and finally the Gedenkblatt für Karl Liebknecht, emphasize in particular the fine quality of this collection.
The museum is located in a private home built in 1871 in Fasanenstraße but destroyed during the 2nd World War. The building underwent a fundamental restauration during the nineteen eighties.
The museum now owns over 200 works, including prints, drawings, posters, sculptures and woodcuts.
