Käthe Kollwitz Death Seizes a Woman (Tod packt eine Frau) from the series Death (Tod) (1934)
After looking through Käthe Kollwitz work there was a theme of death. Death would visit the most vulnerable people in society. It is set against a blank background so it is free of any images of the time or place. It looks like death comes violently and this mother who has lost all hope so death is coming in to do his job.
