Leicester New Walk Museum and Art Gallery: A Journey out of Darkness

From the museum's website:

"A Journey Out of Darkness" is a stunning exhibition of over 100 artworks, which explores the development of Leicester’s German Expressionist Art Collection.

The collection, which began in 1944 amidst the darkness of war with paintings saved from destruction in Nazi Germany, now numbers over 350 artworks, the first and largest of its kind in the UK.

The exhibition will now run until 3 May 2010. This etching, the extraordinary "Death and Woman" by Kathe Kollwitz, forms part of it.
