A photo of Jay DeFeo in front of an early stage of The Rose, from 1961. A light-skinned woman with short black hair wears an oversized black turtleneck, striped pants, and black flat shoes. She has her arms loosely crossed in front of her chest, her right arm slightly raised and holding an unidentifiable object. She looks down and away to the left of the camera and stands in a very large canvas with a starburst shape of thick paint that radiates outward from a dark center, which sits just above and to the right of her head.
