Hesse created an unusual group of oil paintings that, when considered in contrast to her sculptural assemblages from 1965 to 1970, foretell her desire to embody emotional states in abstract form. Contrary to existing scholarship, which suggests that these works represent a form of self-deprecation, this book seeks to consider these spectre paintings as manifestations of a private, haunted interiority in the context of the artists burgeoning maturity.
