Author: Corby, Vanessa
Price: Not Available
Description: London-New York: Tauris, 2010. 24cm., hardcover, 250pp. illus., 16 color plates. Summary: Here is an important new examination of the work of American German Jewish artist Eva Hesse, one of the most significant figures in twentieth century art. Using exciting new feminist approaches, and beginning with a close focus on two key works, Corby reveals the way Hesse has been constructed as a "woman artist" and reveals the absent legacy of the Holocaust and refugee life in her art practice. Considering creativity and the feminine, trauma and historiography, and providing a fascinating reassessment of Hesse’s relationship with her mother and its impact on her work, the book also confirms the importance of drawing practice within Eva Hesse’s wider oeuvre.
