This print is notable in that Eva Hesse signed and dated it, suggesting that the artist felt it to be a particularly important and finished work.
This print is one of numerous etchings made early on by the post-minimalist artist Eva Hesse, otherwise known for sculptures created using unusual, organic materials including rubber, plastic, and rope. Early graphic works such as this unique print informed Hesse’s later three-dimensional work in their layered forms and weightless movement. The artist typically printed in only one or a few impressions, despite printmaking’s ability to create multiples.
