Description:

1st Printing. Unpaginated. Published in 2003. Retrospective monograph on the artist's masterpiece and career. One of the most important art events of our time. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions, particularly the Softcover Edition. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only by a University Press. The First Edition is now scarce. The book is meticulously researched, put together, and beautifully produced: Cloth boards, stunning photographs, archival materials, and scholarly essays. Printed on pristine-white, glossy stock paper in Canada to the highest standards. In pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents "Jay Defeo And The Rose". The definitive book on DeFeo's monumental painting, "The Rose". Which preoccupied her for much of her artistic life, and which is now regarded as a "grand American masterpiece" (Metropolitan Museum of Art). The book celebrates the piece's final restoration after years of neglect, which was completed posthumously, and its acquisition by the Whitney Museum of American Art, now its permanent home. "Massive in scale, layered with nearly two thousand pounds of paint, the overpowering painting was already famous before its first exhibition in 1969 at the Pasadena Art Museum. Eleven distinguished art and cultural historians (Bill Berkson, Niccolo Caldararo, Richard Candida Smith, Walter Hopps, Lucy R. Lippard, Greil Marcus, Sandra S. Phillips, Marla Prather, Carter Ratcliff, David A. Ross, and Martha Sherrill) unfold the story of the creation as well as the tricky and painstaking rescue of DeFeo's radiant masterpiece. These essays also place Jay DeFeo in relation to artists of her time, including Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Lee Bontecou, and Eva Hesse" (Publisher's blurb). An absolute "must-have" title for Jay DeFeo and "The Rose" admirer/collectors. This title is an art book classic. This is one of few copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A scarce copy thus. 80 black-and-white, 13 color plates. One of the most influential and most important American artists of the 20th century. A fine copy. ISBN 0520233557.

Book Description Whitney Museum of American Art; University of California Press, New York and Berkeley, CA, 2003. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st. Cloth, 192 pp., illus. (some col.), bib. notes, index; 26 cm. Firm binding, clean inside copy. Dust jacket protected in a mylar book cover. "Rarely is an artist so closely associated with a single work as is Jay DeFeo with her monumental painting The Rose. Begun in the late 1950s, when DeFeo, a central figure of the Beat generation of San Francisco, was just starting to garner widespread national recognition, the visionary work occupied the artist for eight years. Massive in scale, layered with nearly two thousand pounds of paint, the overpowering painting was already famous before its first exhibition in 1969 at the Pasadena Art Museum. It was next exhibited in San Francisco, then stored at the San Francisco Art Institute, where it languished for twenty-five years before a historic conservation restored it to public view. The Rose now resides in the collection of the Whitney Museum of American Art. This volume is the first major study of The Rose in particular and of Jay DeFeo in general. In the collection, eleven distinguished art and cultural historians--Bill Berkson, Niccolo Caldararo, Richard Candida Smith, Walter Hopps, Lucy R. Lippard, Greil Marcus, Sandra S. Phillips, Marla Prather, Carter Ratcliff, David A. Ross, and Martha Sherrill--unfold the story of the creation, as well as the tricky and painstaking rescue, of DeFeo's radiant masterpiece. While providing new material on The Rose and exposing many myths surrounding both the artist and her great work, these essays also place Jay DeFeo in relation to artists of her time, including Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Lee Bontecou, and Eva Hesse. The book, which adds significantly to the scholarship of postwar American art, includes nearly eighty halftones, thirteen color plates, and Judith Dunham's detailed Rose-related chronology. / Jane Green is an art historian and has worked on exhibitions at Mills College Art Museum and the Berkeley Art Museum, two institutions associated with DeFeo. Leah Levy is an independent curator and trustee of the Estate of Jay DeFeo. She worked directly with DeFeo as curatorial consultant from 1985 until the artist's death in 1989, and organized the conservation of The Rose. She is author of Kathryn Gustafson: Sculpting the Land (1998) and guest curator of Revelatory Landscapes (2001) at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art." - Publisher.
