    Introduction
    In the 1950s, DeFeo was allied with a group of Beat artists, poets, and musicians in San Francisco. She is best known for her monumental painting 'The Rose,' which she spent eight years making. She created a diverse range of work spanning four decades, and her unconventional approach to materials and physical process make her work difficult to categorize.
