One of San Francisco’s most enigmatic figures, the artist known simply as Jess (1923–2004) quietly forged a body of work that privileged the mystical, whimsical, and absurd. Organized around three guiding themes—mythos (story), psyche (soul), and eros (desire)—this exhibition pairs Jess’s paintings and collages with pieces by other California artists, who together reflect the West Coast’s unusual romantic legacy.

Generous support for Mythos, Psyche, Eros: Jess and California is provided by the Elaine McKeon Endowed Exhibition Fund, and Bobbie and Mike Wilsey.
