Eva Hesse (1936–1970) was one of the foremost women artists of the 20th century. In the mid-1960s she began experimenting with new materials that had never before been used to produce art objects; these included polyester, fibreglass and latex. Hesse’s highly distinctive sculptures, which are now included in the collections of major international museums, combine multiple—and also opposing—qualities such as hard and soft, fragile and substantial, abstract and evocative.
