Scholarly article on Jay DeFeo published in online journal Tate Papers
“Coral and Lichen, Brains and Bowels: Jay DeFeo’s Hybrid Abstraction”
by Catherine Spencer
Tate Papers no. 23, Spring 2015
Tate, United Kingdom

Tate Papers is an online research journal that publishes scholarly articles on British and modern international art, and on museum practice today. These areas reflect the breadth of Tate’s collection, exhibition programme and activities, but articles do not need to refer specifically to Tate or to works in its collection to be deemed suitable for submission to the journal. Leading specialists from around the world contribute to Tate Papers, as do researchers working at Tate, and the journal aims to showcase a range of disciplinary approaches to the study of art and museums.
