I have just viewed a beautiful Eva Hesse retrospective at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and this book is a catalogue of that exhibit. Eva Hesse was exceptionally talanted, innovative artist, associated freely with what is described as Minimalism.

I have just viewed a beautiful Eva Hesse retrospective at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and this book is a catalogue of that exhibit. She considerably expanded horizons of our thinking of modern art, introducing new textures, such as latex and fiberglass, presenting her highly original, personal vision with rare integrity and also intensity.

After her untimely death at the young age of thirty-four (1936-1970), Eva Hesse left 135 paintings, 176 sculptures, objects and test pieces as well as more than 700 sketches, drawings and collages behind as her legacy to posterity

After her untimely death at the young age of thirty-four (1936-1970), Eva Hesse left 135 paintings, 176 sculptures, objects and test pieces as well as more than 700 sketches, drawings and collages behind as her legacy to posterity. These works have become the focus of increasing interest over the past three decades

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, and her tragic death in 1970 at the age of 34 - her art has yet to receive the critical attention it deserves.

The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) is a modern art museum located in San Francisco, California

The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) is a modern art museum located in San Francisco, California. A nonprofit organization, SFMOMA holds an internationally recognized collection of modern and contemporary art, and was the first museum on the West Coast devoted solely to 20th-century art. The museum's current collection includes over 33,000 works of painting, sculpture, photography, architecture, design, and media arts.

Eva Hesse is associated with the Postminimal art movement Hang Up. 1966.

Eva Hesse is associated with the Postminimal art movement. Arthur Danto distinguished post-minimalism from minimalism by its "mirth and jokiness," its "unmistakable whiff of eroticism," and its "nonmechanical repetition. Art Museum at Oberlin College, which also maintains the Eva Hesse Archive, donated to the museum by the artist's sister, Helen Hesse Charash, in 1979. List of selected works. Untitled Hang Up. Acrylic on cloth over wood; acrylic on cord over steel tube.

Eva Hesse, with her lumpy, handmade sculpture, her bumpy, dramatic personal life, and her premature death at the age of thirty-four, has long been something of a heroine in college art departments, not unlike Frida Kahlo or Sylvia Plath. With a mere ten-year career to her name (1960-70), you couldn't say precisely that she was ever overlooked: Early supporters included Sol LeWitt, Lucy Lippard, and Dan Graham, and an adolescent gouache even won her a Seventeen magazine contest.

Eva Hesse, a pivotal figure in the development of postwar international art, created paintings, sculpture, and works on paper that were striking in their beauty and 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, and 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 and choices of materials as well as on the larger aesthetic and philosophical questions raised by her artistic practice. The book presents and documents over two hundred works by Hesse in all media. Particular attention is devoted to the degradation and ageing of her sculptures over the past three decades. Essays by a distinguished team of writers deal with themes of mutability and decay in Hesse's art; discuss her little-known early career in New York and Germany; explore her innovative use of translucent materials; and examine the role of drawing and collage in her creative process. This catalogue accompanies an exhibition that will be on view at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art from February to May 2002; the Museum Wiesbaden, Germany, from July to September 2002; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, from September to December 2002.

I, too, say "Thank you" to Eva Hesse and to the people who mounted the show and produced this catalog. I went to SFMOMA to see the major Edward Weston show and spent most of my time being captured by Eva Hesse. I've been back twice for each show.
The Sixties were full of new ideas in art and most were more noisy than Eva Hesse. So, we didn't see enough of her and she really didn't receive the recognition due her in this country. This book is a small step to redress that oversight.
Eva Hess was out on a limb and her work is about as easy to show as a rainstorm. It is a measure of how good she is that the show for this catalog was done so well. This catalog is up to its task.
A very moving and thought provoking show. This catalog will help keep her delicate adventure alive and spawn more Eva Hesses. If you are lucky it will get you to the show, then back to the book to think about this very "material girl", her personal life and perhaps what you should be doing with yours.
It is worth mentioning to those who don't know Hesse's work that this current show will most likely be the last that some of her work will survive. If you want to see it, do it now.

I really appreciate the work of this artist who I only found out about recently. The essays in this book are full of details of the artist's process and pursuit of a pure vision while living in the U.S. and in Europe. She had a hard time being taken seriously in the early days but she persisted in her work--thankfully for all of us. The interviews with her are fascinating and show her internal struggle as she was developing a creative direction. Great catalogue!

This is a beautiful volume on Hesse. Elizabeth Sussman, a wonderful curator and Hesse scholar, organized this exhibition and this is the catalogue. The design, images and layout are just wonderful, the only thing that is somewhat off is the concentration on her earlier work. Her paintings especially are widely featured and those are not nearly as transcendent and absolute as her later work. Her great accomplishment as a major artist was done when she "left" the canvas. The book does not present it as such; I find Lippard's book "Eva Hesse" to be the very best available. This, however, still has the best reproductions and it is a definitive book for all of us who admire Eva Hesse.

I have just viewed a beautiful Eva Hesse retrospective at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and this book is a catalogue of that exhibit. Eva Hesse was exceptionally talanted, innovative artist, associated freely with what is described as Minimalism. She considerably expanded horizons of our thinking of modern art, introducing new textures, such as latex and fiberglass, presenting her highly original, personal vision with rare integrity and also intensity. The exhibit provides a fascinating survey of her carreer: from early Expressionist paintings to collages made from found objects to mature sculptures which challange viewers' notions of artifact, museum space and artistic performance. I think the book preserves the best experience from that show and combines it with interesting, sometimes thought-provoking essays on Hesse by observant art critics. It is invaluable as a source on Hesse, Minimalism and, more broadly, international artistic scene of the 60s, of which Eva Hesse was one of the prime, crucial figures.
