Between 1968-1969 Dorothy Iannone made a series of 27 drawings depicting her life with Dieter Roth while living in Germany, France and Iceland. Dorothy described this period as "always immersed in the beloved." She called this series of drawings Ta(Rot) (Dieter Roth was also known as Dieter Rot). The drawings are beautiful, romantic, and personal. When Dorothy had her exhibition at the New Museum in 2009, she collaborated with Jarrett Gregory and Daniel Thiem to re-imagine her Ta(Rot) series into a tarot pack edition. The Museum scanned her original drawings (which were A4 sized) and then compressed them into 3.75" x 5" laminated cards. Each Ta(Rot) pack is housed in a custom handmade cherry box, hand branded with the edition title. The edition is hand-signed and numbered by the artist.

Known primarily for her explicit and often controversial works, self-taught artist Dorothy Iannone depicts intimate sexual acts in a bold, colorful style influenced by folk art, Byzantine mosaics, and Indian erotic paintings. While she typically creates paintings in acrylic, Iannone has also worked with sculpture, video, and works on paper, including several artist's books. Her book An Iceland Saga documents her first encounters with her muse and former partner, the German artist Dieter Roth, in the style of a Norse myth. Though many of her works border on the pornographic, Iannone treats sexual acts as a form of spiritual union, claiming, "it was the drive toward ecstatic unity that inspired me." In addition to her artistic achievements, Iannone is known for her crusade against censorship: in 1961, she famously filed a lawsuit against the United States government after US Customs confiscated her copy of Henry Miller's Tropic of Cancer. The suit was successful and the ban on Miller's books was lifted.

Iannone's work has been exhibited in solo shows at institutions including the New Museum (2009), Kunsthalle Wien (2006), and Kunst-Werke in Berlin (1992) and in group shows such as Seductive Subversion: Contemporary Women Artists 1958—1968 at the Brooklyn Museum (2010), Bodypoliticx at Witte de With in Rotterdam (2007), and the 2006 Whitney Biennial.
