Additional Information

Jay DeFeo (1929–1989) was part of a vibrant community of avant-garde artists, poets, and musicians in San Francisco during the 1950s and 1960s. Her circle included Wallace Berman, Joan Brown, Bruce Conner, Wally Hedrick, Edward Kienholz, and Michael McClure. Although best known for her monumental painting The Rose (1958–66), DeFeo worked in a wide range of media and produced an astoundingly diverse and compelling body of work over four decades. DeFeo's unconventional approach to materials and her intensive, physical method make her a unique figure in postwar American art.

In the first comprehensive monograph on DeFeo, Dana Miller looks at the breadth of the artist's work, her cross-disciplinary practice, broad range of interests and influences, as well as pivotal moments in her career. In addition, Miller dispels misconceptions and assumptions about the artist and also offers new insight into her under-recognized works from the 1970s and 1980s. Greil Marcus explores the significance of titles in DeFeo's work; Michael Duncan considers her approach to her career and the marketplace; Corey Keller looks at DeFeo's photographic oeuvre; and Carol Mancusi-Ungaro examines her materials and processes.

The book features new photography, archival images, and a number of previously unpublished works. Also included are a biographical chronology, an extensive bibliography, and an exhibition history.

Well done presentation of artist's work and her life. It is a book that I will keep and cherish the thought of this artist --so talented--working away obsessively for years on the Rose. And by saying " working away obsessively" I am not being negatively critical of her or her work. All of us artists can (and should be) obsessive at times. My heart goes out to Jay DeFeo. I want to celebrate her and her work.
I saw this exhibit at SFMOMA...impressive! This book is well put together and really shows how talented Ms. DeFeo was as an artist. If you like her work or are interested in female artists, get this book.
Jay DeFeo was one of the major American artists of her time, as critics are realizing at last.
This rich exhibition catalog, beautifully illustrated and carefully researched, gives some idea
of the richness and diversity of her work.
