Eva Hesse, a pivotal figure in the development of postwar international art, created paintings, sculpture, & works on paper that were striking in their beauty & playful sensibility. Although much has been written about Hesse's dramatic life--her childhood flight from Nazi Germany, her struggles to gain acceptance as a young female artist, her battle with cancer, & her tragic death in 1970 at the age of 34--her art has yet to receive the critical attention it deserves. This lavishly illustrated catalogue redresses that omission, focusing on Hesse's innovative working methods & choices of materials as well as on the larger aesthetic & philosophical questions raised by her artistic practice. The book presents & documents over two hundred works by Hesse in all media. Particular attention is devoted to the degradation & aging of her sculptures over the past three decades. Essays by a distinguished team of writers deal with themes of mutability & decay in Hesse's art; discuss her little-known early career in New York & Germany; explore her innovative use of translucent materials; & examine the role of drawing & collage in her creative process.
