9780810992528: Joseph Cornell: Master of Dreams

Out of the fantasies that enriched an often reclusive life, the enigmatic American artist Joseph Cornell (1903-1972) created a world of enchantment with his famed shadow boxes and collages. Using common objects like glasses, marbles, and mirrors, Cornell's work evokes the strangeness of the familiar and the odd familiarity of the strange.

Respected art historian and friend of the artist Diane Waldman probes the elusive imagery that marks Cornell's work. Interviews with Cornell and his family and access to the artist's papers inform her text. This richly illustrated book, now available in paperback, is one of the few to cover his entire career.

About the Author :

Diane Waldman, a distinguished art historian and Cornell expert, was the deputy director and senior curator at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York. In 1967 she organized the first major retrospective of Cornell's work in New York. Her many publications include Abrams' Mark Rothko and Collage, Assemblage, and the Found Object. She lives in New York.

From Booklist :

Cornell's exquisite boxes, intimate constructions filled with found objects and collaged images, merit repeated visits just as poems call out to be read again and again, and each new Cornell book discloses something fresh and illuminating about this most magnetic and lyrical of artists. Waldman, an art historian, author, and former curator and deputy director of the Guggenheim Museum, knew Cornell and was the first to study his unique art. Now, nearly four decades later, she brings a wealth of long-brewing insights to this gorgeous volume, which boasts not only Waldman's lucid and expert commentary on Cornell's intriguing influences but also some of the finest color reproductions of his work ever published. Waldman discusses Cornell's fascination with games, Victorian imagery, ballet, movies, all things French, the young Medicis, constellations, hotels, and birds and cites the many poets and artists he revered, Dickinson and Vermeer among them. Ultimately, the profound enchantment of Cornell's poetic boxes can be attributed to their reflection of his "deeply reverential attitude toward the universe as a mirror of mysterious truths."

Description du livre Abrams, United States, 2006. Paperback. État : New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. Joseph Cornell created a poetic theatre of memory from his fantasies. His box constructions and collages feature such characters as a Medici princess, birds, ballerinas, and movie stars. Using the seemingly commonplace materials that he collected such as cordial glasses, mirrors, marbles, and maps, along with clippings from books and magazines, childhood games, and Victorian illustrations, Cornell beckons us into a world at once distantly magical and nostalgically like home. Diane Waldman first met Cornell in 1963, when she was writing her master of fine arts thesis on the subject of his art, and their friendship continued until his death. In this volume she probes Cornell s elusive imagery in his earliest Surrealist-inspired collages of the 1930s, his masterful box constructions of the 1940s and 1950s, his experimental films, and his final collages in his last years, adding to the analysis of his art her own personal knowledge. Cornell s universe of objects and images, vivid with half-remembered stories, reminds us ultimately of the strangeness of the familiar, the odd familiarity of the strange, and the final mysteriousness of the world we thought we knew.
