    Default Can't figure out what this sentence means

    "The visual language apparent in these artworks is unfamiliar, as is the artist, Eva Hesse. Her work is as exciting as it is disturbing. For many, Hesse's sculpture refers essentially to the body. This, perhaps, does not seem surprising when it is in relation to the body that women are generally assessed. Hesse died of a brain tumour in 1970 at the age of 34. It must be an inescapable inevitability, therefore, that her work was read in the context of its time where it has, until recently, been largely abandoned."

    The more I read, the more confused I got
    Please help~Many many thanks.

    I think it means that her work has been forgotten or neglected, but it's not very clear- I think it's a bit of a clumsy sentence.
