Abstract (English)

Reflecting on the artist's tragic personal life, five authors contribute essays analyzing the evolution of Hesse's paintings, drawings, and sculptures (1936-1970). Elements of homour, absurdity, eroticism, contradiction, and the manifestation of pain/disease in the work are highlighted along with the artist's identity as a woman and rebellious attitude towards the prevailing aesthetics of her contemporaries. Includes a chronology incorporating excerpts from Hesse's diaries, notebooks, and letters. 64 bibl. ref.
