Eva Hesse (1936-1970) has long been recognized by artists and critics as a sculptor of exceptional talent and prodigious influence. The public has rarely seen her work, however, because its fragility has made it difficult to exhibit. This richly illustrated and critically interpretive book enables a wide audience to appreciate the magnitude of her achievement and the legacy of her art. Hesse was an expressionist in an age of minimalism. Against the predominantly impersonal visual modes of the sixties, she insisted on the subjective qualities of her art. She opened up new frontiers in sculpture--in form, content, and material--and helped to change the way artists, critics, and viewers look at art. Hesse's career also coincided with the incubation period of modern feminism, and her art stands as a courageous and complex effort to articulate a female identity. The book includes essays by five noted authorities: Linda Norden discusses Hesse's early career in New York following her years as a student of Josef Albers; Maria Kreutzer writes on Hesse's work in Germany in the mid-sixties, when she moved from two to three dimensions; Robert Storr places Hesse in relation to the central American artistic concerns of the 1960s, focusing on her links to such artists as Jasper Johns, Sol LeWitt, and Claes Oldenburg; Anna Chave analyzes Hesse's mature work in light of contemporary feminist theory on authorship and subjectivity; and Maurice Berger examines Hesse's radical and personal approach to the sculptural object following her rejection of painting. In addition, Helen Cooper draws on the artist's extensive diaries, notebooks, and correspondence for a chronology detailed as much as possible in Hesse's own words. This beautiful book, which brings together Hesse's most important sculptures, reliefs, and her rarely seen drawings and early paintings, is the catalogue for an exhibition of Hesse's work that opens at the Yale University Art Gallery in April 1992 and travels to the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, D.C.
Eva Hesse : sculpture by Elisabeth Sussman ( Book )
5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 690 libraries worldwide
The work of sculptor Eva Hesse (1936-1970), one of the greatest American artists of the 1960s, continues to inspire and to endure in large part because of its deeply emotional and evocative qualities. Her latex and fiberglass sculptures in particular have a resonance that transcends the boundaries of minimalist art in which she had her roots. Hesse's breakthrough solo exhibition - Chain Polymers at the Fischbach Gallery in New York in 1968 - was a turning point in postwar American art. "Eva Hesse: Sculpture" focuses on the artist's large-scale sculptures in latex and fiberglass and provides a rare opportunity to look at Hesse's artistic achievement within the historical context of her life in never-before-seen family diaries and photographs. Essays consider Hesse's art from a variety of angles: Elisabeth Sussman discusses the sculptures shown in the 1968 solo exhibition; Fred Wasserman delves into the Hesse family's life in Nazi Germany and in the German Jewish community in New York in the 1940s; Yve-Alain Bois examines Hesse's works within the context of the art and aesthetic theories of the 1960s; and Mark Godfrey analyses the importance of Hesse's celebrated hanging sculptures of 1969-70. In addition to colour reproductions of the artist's sculpture, the book features a copiously illustrated chronology of the artist's life.

Eva Hesse drawing ( Book )
5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 629 libraries worldwide
Eva Hesse (1936-1970) was a highly experimental artist who continually challenged the conventions of her time. For Hesse, drawing played a unique role, providing the nexus between her works in all media. "Eva Hesse Drawing" is the first book to explore her drawing process, following her work from drawing to painting and sculpture, and always back to drawing. The book features important, recently rediscovered 'working drawings', providing an intimate look at Hesse's everyday practice and methodology. An accomplished draftswoman, Hesse began to develop her wandering, tentative line while studying at Yale University in the late 1950s. Her early 1960s works on paper engaged with visual vocabularies from geometry to biomorphic abstraction. In 1965, Hesse combined her tactile sensibility for materials with her stringlike line to achieve a breakthrough in her astonishing reliefs, bridging the space between two and three dimensions. Balancing the disembodiment of line with its intensified materialisation, Hesse went on to develop one of the most innovative oeuvres of the twentieth century, anticipating the hybridisation of media and crossing borderlines linking one impossible space to another.

Eva Hesse longing, belonging and displacement by Vanessa Corby ( Book )
3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 518 libraries worldwide
From the Publisher: In the ten years between 1960 and 1970, German-born American artist Eva Hesse produced one of the most compelling art practices of the twentieth century. Her death in 1970 has been a profound loss for contemporary art but the creative legacies of her practice continue to impact upon today's artists. In this book, Vanessa Corby presents a fascinating new analysis that starts from and circles back to two drawings made by Eva Hesse in 1960-61. Written from the position of a painter, the book develops a novel art historical method to consider the manner in which artistic protocols and processes negotiate and transform culturally mediated historical experience. Hesse's encounters with the work of Rico Lebrun, the growing cultural significance of The Diary of Anne Frank, and the capture and trial of Adolf Eichmann are each situated in relation to the artist's processes of picturing in order to supplement and shift current understanding of Hesse's art practice. Corby aims to show that the artist's work emerged in parallel with the recognition of the event now named 'the Holocaust' in American culture. Thus this groundbreaking text does not claim that Hesse's work is about the Holocaust. Instead, it positions her artistic practice and sense of identity as an artist as the product of a desire to belong, a longing precipitated by her initial displacement caused by forced emigration from Germany in 1939, and a longing re-invoked by the specific cultural and political contexts of 1950s and 1960s America.

In 1960, Eva Hesse created an unusual group of oil paintings that foretell her desire to embody emotional states in abstract form. This book seeks to consider these 'spectre' paintings as manifestations of a private, haunted interiority in the context of the artist's burgeoning maturity.
