This set of four industrial etchings by German illustrator Herman Kätelhön (1884-1940) depict scenes relating to the mining community. They were produced during the early 20th-century when the artist worked in Essen.
Between 1918 and 1940, Kätelhön produced various etchings and lithographs describing the ever-industrialised German landscape and the workers labouring within it. He held a deep respect for the mining community and immersed himself in its claustrophobic underground world.
