Jay DeFeo, The Rose, 1958-1966, Oil with Wood and Mica on Canvas

Jay DeFeo, The Eyes, 1958 - Graphite on Paper

SFMOMA | Exhibitions Events | Calendar | Jay DeFeo: A Retrospective

A rare opportunity to experience her unique works of art.  I have been intrigued by this artist for a very long time.  Her monumental piece, The Rose, and the story behind its creation, effect on the artist, and eventual recovery and restoration is an engaging saga.
