From 1903 to 1908, Käthe Kollwitz created plates for Bauernkrieg/Peasant War, a series of etchings that represents the brutal treatment of peasants in sixteenth-century Germany, their rise to revolution and battle and their subsequent humiliation and death. Although based on historic events, she used this series as a vehicle to criticize and protest the anticipated tragedies that unfolded across Europe during the first half of the twentieth-century.
