Summary
Joseph Cornell (1903-1972), the American pioneer of collage, montage, and assemblage art, is sometimes regarded as a solitary star within the constellation of great Surrealists. This volume considers connections between Cornell and the Surrealist group during the 1930s and 1940s, which mark Cornell's artistic development and the heyday of Surrealism in the United States. He shared with the Surrealists his basic conception of the visual image as the product of poetic juxtaposition. In Cornell's best-known works - the collages, small constructions of found objects, and classic shadow boxes - he took this key Surrealist method to new directions. This book also examines Cornell's achievement in other formats, including his ground-breaking collage film and the open-ended and nonlinear achives of printed materials that he called "explorations." Joseph Cornell and Surrealism also explores the ideas on art, literature, music, and dance that nourished his unconventional artistic output. -- from inside cover
