Heinrich Zille

Special exhibition from November 6, 2021 till January 9, 2022

Käthe Kollwitz appreciated Heinrich Zille in the works in which he artistically captured people and situations exclusively by drawing means. The exhibition at the Kollwitz Museum attempts to present the artist in these essential moments, leaving aside the humorous typifications executed at the time for marketing purposes. For Käthe Kollwitz, these works by Heinrich Zille were “masterpieces”.

The Kollwitz Museum presents about 60 works, including numerous heliogravures and partly colored drawings.
