(ArtWorks series). Now in paperback, the definitive life of Joseph Cornell (1903-1972), the self-taught American artist acclaimed for his disquieting, surrealist shadow boxes. A brilliant, relentlessly serious artist, Cornell, whose stature has now reached monumental proportions, was haunted by dreams and visions, yet the site of his imaginings was a small house he shared with his mother and invalid brother in Queens, New York. In its cluttered basement, he arranged photographs, cut-outs, and other disjecta into some of the most romantic works to exist in three dimensions. Cornell is also known for his work in film, gathering found footage into surreal reels. Addenda. Illus. 426p.
