Published on the occasion of an exhibition, _Jay DeFeo: Paintings on Paper, 1986-1987_, which showed at Marc Selwyn Fine Art, Beverly Hills from November 5, 2016-January 7, 2017. The show featured the paintings and writings of Jay DeFeo (1929-1969), an American mixed-media artist whose works have spanned a variety of art disciplines including painting, sculpture, drawing, photo-collage, collage, and jewelry. She is perhaps best-known for her monumental painting, _The Rose_. The paintings depicted herein feature a predominantly monochromatic color palette of blacks, whites, and grays and are Abstract Expressionist in style. Introductory statement by Leah Levy, Executive Director of the Jay DeFeo Foundation, included. Acquired from the private library of photorealist, Robert Bechtle and art historian, Whitney Chadwick.
