Enrique Martinez Celaya & Kathe Kollwitz : From the First and the Last Things
A richly illustrated book looking at the work of Enrique Martinez Celaya & Kathe Kollwitz in parallel
The artist Enrique Martinez Celaya and the collector couple Gudrun and Martin Fritsch have shared the same passion for decades: enthusiasm for and preoccupation with the work of Kathe Kollwitz. While the Berlin collector couple built up the most important privately owned Kollwitz collection, the artist referred to the artist in many ways in his work. Parallels can also be found in the artistic practice of Martinez Celaya and Kollwitz.
The work of both artists occupies a space between drawing and sculpture and articulates a deeply felt humanism as an expression of their respective biographies. On the occasion of the exhibition at Galerie Judin, Enrique Martinez Celaya created a group of works distilling his examination of Kathe Kollwitz, which now enters into an exciting dialogue with the works from the Fritsch Collection.
