Expressionism is created when artist expresses emotional experiences through paintings, drawings or music. In Germany in 1867 Kathe Kollwitz was born. This woman would grow up to be one of few woman artists of her time. She then got married to a doctor and she was sad that she couldn’t help these people. The two lovebirds had a son named Peter who sadly passed away before they did. Her art was filled with politics after this event because her son died at war. She expressed her sadness through her art which was the only way she dealt with it. Her husband then died at the age of 77. She dealt with lots of illness and death in her life. She once said “Drawing is the only thing that makes my life bearable.”
