The Rose

Jay Defeo, 1958-1966

129 x 92 x 11 inch
Almost eight years in the making, Defeo only stopped working on it when she was forced to move out of her studio apartment. By then is almost weighed a ton, and the only way to move the paining was to cut out part of the building’s front wall and extract it with a forklift. It is now part of the permanent collection at The Whitney in New York. Overall: 128 7/8 × 92 1/4 × 11 in. (327.3 × 234.3 × 27.9 cm)
