"Die Witwe," the caption reads - "The widow." She and her cat were captured in colored chalk by Heinrich Zille (1858-1929). Though it's undated, this tragicomic study is part of Zille's life work portraying the poorer classes around him in Berlin. He did so with humor and respect as he watched them struggle against unforgiving socioeconomic odds, but yet never quite giving up. You see our widow here believes enough in living to keep a little friend.
