Physical Details: Mail art : 1 item : various media ; 96 x 98 cm.
Sender: Jay DeFeo (1929-1989) (San Francisco, Calif.)
Recipient: Wallace Berman (1926-1976) (Los Angeles, Calif.)
Description: DeFeo has taken a poster for the 3rd annual Los Angeles Film-makers Festival and collaged over it with scraps of brown paper on which she wrote her and Berman's addresses; a photo of a little girl (possibly DeFeo at a young age); and a torn piece of paper with a typewritten message.
The message reads: The White Rose is a Fact painted somewhere on a slow curve between destinations. This is all I remember. This is all I know...; It is all I can say about the Universal Pastime for all giant fans who believe in the second coming of Casey Stengel.
