Abstract:

Joseph Cornell, the American assemblage artist, was a quirky (but passionate) collector of bric-a-brac who used trinkets, scraps of paper, paint, and lots of glue to arrange imaginative worlds inside of glass-fronted wooden boxes and frames. Did you know that: Cornell's infatuation with movie stars inspired some of his most famous works, which he created as tributes to the women he adored from afar: Lauren Bacall, Greta Garbo, and Marilyn Monroe; Cornell's genius lay in his transformation of everyday objects into enchanting realms; Cornell's loyalty to family led to his lifetime support of his mother and invalid brother, with whom he shared a modest house on Utopia Parkway in Queens, New York. 72 illustrations, including 47 plates in full color.
