As the wild ride of the 1960s came to a close, Eva Hesse, a 34-year-old German-born American artist, was cresting the wave of a swiftly rising career. One of the few women recognized as central to the New York art scene, she had over twenty group exhibitions scheduled for 1970, in addition to being chosen for a cover article in ArtForum magazine. Her work was finally receiving both the critical and commercial attention it deserved.
