Synopsis: Joseph Cornell was one of the most original and extraordinary American artists of the twentieth century. Born in 1903, he lived almost all his life with his mother and badly handicapped brother in a house on Utopia Parkway, Queens, New York. A recluse, with no formal artistic training, Cornell had an obsessive fear of female sexuality (he died a virgin) but fantasized about ballerinas and film stars, preferably long dead. These fantasies were expressed in his remarkable 'shadow boxes', the constructions on which his artistic reputation rests. Admired by the Surrealists, then the Abstract Expressionists and finally by the pop artists, Cornell remained a unique figure, both as an artist and a human being.

About the Author: Deborah Solomon is the art critic for The Wall Street Journal. She was born in New York City in 1957 and was educated at Cornell University. The author of Jackson Pollock: A Biography, she has written about art for The New York Times and many other publications. She lives in Manhattan.

Book Description Jonathan Cape, London, 1997. Cloth. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. pp 426. 'No artist ever led a stranger life than Joseph Cornell (1903-72), the self-taught American genius prized for his enchanting and disquieting shadow boxes, an art form all his own . Cornell - a thin, drawn, diffident specter of a man - was haunted by dreams and visions, yet the site of his imaginings couldn't have been more ordinary: a white frame house he shared with his mother and brother on Utopia Parkway in Queens on the fringes of New York City. Working in his cluttered basement workshop, he arranged faded photographs, cutouts of birds, and assorted other objects in his small shadow boxes, transforming humble discards into some of the most romantic works ever to exist in three dimensions.'.
