About this title

Synopsis:

Cultural historian Dickran Tashjian provides a fresh analysis of the works that Joseph Cornell conceived as gifts to ballerinas,poets and actresses. In this way the artist connected his life withg that of Emily Dickinson, Marianne Moore, Hedy Lamarr, Lauren Bacall and other glamourous and talented personalities he admired, most often from afar.His gifts ranged from simple gestures of love and affection to collaborations and exchanges with photographer Lee Miller and artists Leonor Fini and Dorothea Tanning,who,like himself,were connected with the Surrealist movement.

By making extensive use of the artist's diaries,correspondence and library,Tashjian leads the reader on a wondrous journey through the labrinth of Cornell's creative process.This beautifully designed book with lavish color plates captures the spirit of Cornell's enchanting collages and box constructions.

About the Author:

Dickran Tashjian is professor of art history at the University of California, Irvine. Some of his other books are "A Boatload of Madmen:Surrealism and the American Avant-Garde 1920-1950" and "William Carlos Williams and the American Scene."

Store Description

Sharing is the best surprise When we share our excess with others we¿re often surprised by what we feel, what changes in us, and who we get to know in the process. Sharehouse Goods exists to create that experience for as many people as possible. Sharehouse Goods receives excess stuff from individuals or organizations (our sharers), and then we liquidate that stuff, creating jobs for people in Milwaukee. The process is simple: we receive what people are willing to share, and then we sell it online or at our storefront, creating revenue for the sharers (to keep or to donate), and jobs for people who are struggling to find employment. There¿s a lot of sharing going on, and even more surprises, at Sharehouse Goods.
