American, 1936-1970. Eva Hesse was a prominent sculptor well-known for her unique sculptures made of latex, plastics, fiberglass, and textiles. The artist was also among the founders of the Post-Minimalism art movement-a conceptual time for sculptures during the 1960s. Eva Hesse was born in Hamburg, Germany, and settled in New York due to her Jewish heritage during World War II. After studying at the Cooper Union, Hesse pursued BFA at Yale University. At Yale, she studied under the guidance of Josef Albers. Hesse received popularity for her avant-garde style in 1966 during the “Eccentric Abstraction” art show, a landmark exhibition by Lucy Lippard. Impressed by artists Joseph Beuys and Sol Lewitt, Hesse worked continuously, for rejecting the definitions of the status quo. Hesse’s artistic career, however only lasted for 10 years as she died of a brain tumor in 1970. Today Eva Hesse Artwork is on sale at auctions and also a part of collections at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Modern Art, Sculpture Garden, the Hirshhorn Museum, the National Gallery of Australia, the Tate Gallery, the San Francisco Museum of Art, the Guggenheim Museum, and the Whitney Museum.
