Not known to have been involved in woodblock printmaking but known as an etcher. It took me some time to be able to represent her with a work in this collection. Although “just” an ex-libris it is an actual small etching and it seems to reflect most of her other work. She was a close friend of Käthe Kollwitz, her short biography and early exhibitions history is most interesting to read.
