Kathe Kollwitz and Rockwell Kent come to my mind as I read your request. Check them out.

You might also look at Paul Delvaux's work on human suffering/the human condition. I really like Delvaux.

Most of the Surrealists and German Expressionists... especially Dix, Grosz, Max Beckmann, etc...

I would recommend Egon Schiele, Philip Guston’s late work, and Leon Golub...
