Käthe Kollwitz (German, 1867-1945)

Two Plates from Ein Weberaufstand: Beratung, plate 3, probably from the 1921 edition, with the publisher's early single line "VERLAG A.v.d.BECKE.BERLIN" dry stamp, lithograph printed in brown (Knesebeck, 35AIIc); and Ende, plate 6, probably from the 1931 edition, etching and aquatint (Knesebeck, 38IV). Both signed "Kollwitz" in pencil l.l. and inscribed and titled "Weber Bl..." in pencil l.r. Image sizes to 9 3/4 x 12 in. (24.6 x 30.2 cm), unmatted, unframed.
Condition: Both with toning and masking tape residue to edges.
Estimate $400-600
