Description

Originally published to celebrate the centennial of Joseph Cornells birth, this book provides a fresh, multidimensional perspective on the pioneering modern artist. Lavishly illustrated with over seventy-five boxes and collages, as well as images of the fascinating source material that the artist collected to create his exquisitely crafted worlds, the book communicates to the reader the sense of surprise and delight that one experiences upon viewing the actual boxes with their toys, stuffed birds, maps, clay pipes, marbles, shells, and other paraphernalia of daily life. The books essays bring together the expertise of Lynda Roscoe Hartigan; the compelling commentary of Walter Hopps; the wide-ranging scholarship of Richard Vine; and the sensitivity of Robert Lehrman, a leading Cornell collector whose firsthand experience lends this publication its distinctive intimacy. Among the topics explored is the role of dualities in the artistic process, the dominant themes of Cornells oeuvre, and the importance of his Christian Science faith.
