Item details

Masquerade in Black is a beautiful mixed media on masonite painting done by Jay DeFeo. Jay was a central figure among San Francisco’s beat generation artists in the 1950’s and 1960’s. Masquerade in Black is part of a series of work DeFeo created in the 1970’s that used images of mechanical objects painted in a forceful manner to suggest an animate being. This painting was included in a major retrospective of her work in 2012, exhibited at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Whitney Museum.
