Travel Tip: Art and Archaeology in United States
Eva Hesse

Eva Hesse
SAN FRANCISCO  •  San Francisco Museum of Modern Art  •  Ongoing
Born in Hamburg, Germany, in 1936, Eva Hesse and her family immigrated to the United States in 1939 to escape the Nazi regime. She lived most of her life in New York, studying at the Pratt Institute of Design from 1952 to 1953 and Cooper Union from 1954 to 1957. From 1957 to 1959, she attended Yale School of Art and Architecture, where she received her B.F.A. studying under Josef Albers. After a brief, prolific decade as a serious artist, Hesse died at age 34 from brain cancer. From 1960 through 1970, the duration of her artistic career, Hesse painted, created drawings, collages and gouaches, and produced three-dimensional sculptural installations. Eva Hesse features approximately 150 of the artist's most significant paintings, sculptures and works on paper, including several key works acquired in recent years by SFMOMA.
