Eva Hesse was one of the great artists of the 1960s, and her major sculptural works stand out as singular achievements of that era. At once drawing on Minimalist strategies of repetition and seriality, and pushing non-traditional materials toward new modes of expression, Hesse created an art that evoked emotion, absence, and contingency.
