Towards the end of her year working in Germany, Hesse produced a group of particularly free and bold drawings. While earlier drawings had suggested complex machines with a number of interlinked parts, she now concentrated on isolated organic elements that anticipate the sculptures she would begin to make when she returned to New York. Like other works by Hesse, this drawing suggests references to the body while remaining abstract.
