Hardcover. New York , George Braziller, 1st, 1977, Book: Very Good, Dust Jacket: Very Good, Hardcover, 128 pages, 40 color and 90 b&w illustrations. 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. Bright, unclipped dust jacket with light edgewear, repaired chip. Clean copy.
