This monumental tome contains the entirety of the important German artist's drawings held in the collection of the Allen Memorial Art Museum, Oberlin College, Ohio. The AMAM was the first museum to purchase a sculpture by Hesse, Laocoon, in 1970. In gratitude for its recognition of Hesse's work, and following the artist's untimely death, her sister Helen Hesse Charash generously donated the artist's notebooks, diaries, sketchbooks, photographs and letters to the museum. Hesse's drawings played a crucial role in her work, which in turn gave way to an array of highly innovative techniques and styles that today still defy classification. As she commented in 1970: "I had a great deal of difficulty with painting but never with drawing ... the translation or transference to a large scale and in painting was always tedious.... So I started working in relief and with line." Hesse's custom of introducing sculptural materials into drawing and painting continues to influence artmaking today. Eva Hesse (1936-70) was one of the foremost artists of the 20th century. Her work combined the seriality and reductionism of 1960s minimalism with emotion, sensuousness and physicality. Her work is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, Tate, Guggenheim and many others.

In the ten years between 1960 and 1970, German-born American artist Eva Hesse produced one of the most compelling art practices of the twentieth century. Her death in 1970 has been a profound loss for contemporary art but the creative legacies of her practice continue to impact upon today's artists. In this book, Vanessa Corby presents a fascinating new analysis that starts from the position of a painter, the book develops a novel art historical method to consider the manner in which artistic protocols and processes negotiate and transform culturally mediated historical experience. Hesse's encounters with the work of Rico Lebrun, the growing cultural significance of The Diary of Anne Frank, and the capture and trial of Adolf Eichmann are each situated in relation to the artist's processes of picturing in order to supplement and shift current understanding of Hesse's art practice. Corby aims to show that the artist's work emerged in parallel with the recognition of the event now --
