In Jay DeFeo: A Retrospective, the Whitney Museum offers an in-depth assessment of Jay DeFeo’s art works to date.
This retrospective of the San Francisco artist will be comprehensive with the inclusion of drawings, photographs, paintings, collages, jewellery and small sculptures. In the 1950s, DeFeo was at the heart of a growing movement of musicians, poets and artists and although she was at the start of her career, her fascinating diverse creations hint at the non-conformist attitudes of the time. Her most famous, The Rose (1958-66), weighs more than 900 kg and is a visionary masterpiece that languished behind a wall for 20 years. It made her an important figure in post-war American Art.
