Eva Hesse (1936-1970) was a German-born American sculptor, a pioneer in fiberglass, latex and plastics. She was also a leader of the minimalist and post-minimalist movements. Aside from fiberglass, most of Hesse’s materials do not typically age well. This has driven conservators crazy over the years, but many fans of her work believe that gradual alteration has given her pieces more value.
