Joseph Cornell : master of dreams by Diane Waldman( Book )

4 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 961 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Out of the fantasies that enriched a private, often reclusive life, Joseph Cornell created a "poetic theater of memory." His box constructions and collages feature such characters as a Medici princess, birds, ballerinas, and movie stars. Using the seemingly commonplace materials that he collected in five-and-dime stores and other shops in New York City - cordial glasses, mirrors, marbles, and maps among them - along with clippings from books and magazines, childhood games, and Victorian illustrations, Cornell beckons us into a world at once distantly magical and tantalizingly, nostalgically "home."" "Diane Waldman first met Cornell in 1963, when she was writing her master of fine arts' thesis on the subject of his art, and their friendship continued until his death. Over the years, Waldman has written often about Cornell, adding to the analysis of his art her own personal knowledge gained from interviews with the artist and his family as well as Cornell's letters and papers. In this volume she probes Cornell's elusive imagery in his earliest Surrealist-inspired collages of the 1930s, his masterful box constructions of the 1940s and 1950s, his experimental films, and his final collages in his last years."--Jacket
Joseph Cornell : shadowplay, eterniday by Lynda Roscoe Hartigan( Book )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in English and held by 688 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Published to celebrate the centennial of Joseph Cornell's birth in 1903, this book provides a fresh, multidimensional perspective on the pioneering modern artist. Lavishly illustrated with over seventy-five boxes and collages, as well as images of the fascinating source material that the artist collected to create his exquisitely crafted worlds, the book communicates to the reader the sense of surprise and delight that one experiences upon viewing the actual boxes with their toys, stuffed birds, maps, clay pipes, marbles, shells, and other paraphernalia of daily life." "The book's essays bring together the expertise of Lynda Roscoe Hartigan, chief curator at the Peabody Essex Museum and former director of the Joseph Cornell Study Center; the compelling commentary of Walter Hopps, art dealer, museum curator, and the artist's personal friend; the wide-ranging scholarship of Richard Vine, author and managing editor of Art in America; and the sensitivity of Robert Lehrman, a leading Cornell collector whose firsthand experience lends this publication its distinctive intimacy. Among the topics explored are the role of dualities in the artistic process, the dominant themes of Cornell's oeuvre, and the importance of his Christian Science faith."--Jacket
Joseph Cornell : stargazing in the cinema by Jodi Hauptman( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 565 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Best known for evocative box-constructions in which he assembled small objects and ephemera, the American surrealist Joseph Cornell (1903-72) was also a devoted fan of the cinema. He thrived on almost daily visits to movie theaters, amassed archives of films and film stills, created short motion pictures, and produced works honoring his favorite female movie stars. This book examines for the first time Cornell's "portrait-homages" to these actresses, Hedy Lamarr, Lauren Bacall, Greta Garbo, and Jennifer Jones, among others."--Jacket

Joseph Cornell's Manual of marvels : how Joseph Cornell reinvented a French agricultural manual to create an American masterpiece by Analisa Leppanen-Guerra( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Joseph Cornell's Manual of marvels introduces one of Joseph Cornell's most brilliant yet least-known works. The 'Untitled book object : Journal d'agriculture pratique et journal de l'agriculture, ' as the work is formally known, is extremely fragile ... Our ambition has been to make the entire work accessible. To that end, Joseph Cornell's Manual of marvels includes an interactive CD that will allow the reader to explore the entire book; a collection of essays about Cornell and the making of the Untitled book object; and an abridged facsimile edition of the book."--[Vol. 2], p. 5

Joseph Cornell and surrealism( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
The amateur as auteur : discovering paradise in pictures by David Shepard( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

American experimental film has existed since the technological inception of cinema, through its adolescent rambles of 1900-1919, rising phoenix-like during the high silent era, and finally matured and spread throughout the '30's and onward. The background against which the experimentalists toiled provides a fascinating review of Americana coupled with numerous cross-currents, successes and failures, and an unfailing desire to create on film an image that can be viewed as an independent and provocative art. These home-made films incorporate avant-garde strategies and techniques to achieve a true sense of cinematic intimacy

Joseph Cornell/Marcel Duchamp --in resonance by Joseph Cornell( Book )

7 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and German and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book chronicles the friendship and working relationship between Marcel Duchamp (1887-1968) and Joseph Cornell (1903-1972), two of the twentieth century's most innovative and influential artists. Joseph Cornell/Marcel Duchamp ... in resonance publishes for the first time the Duchamp Dossier (c. 1942-53) - a hitherto publicly unknown collection compiled by Cornell and discovered in the artist's estate following his death in 1972. The small objects, typed and handwritten notes, and ephemera found within the Duchamp Dossier provide an absorbing record of the interchange between these two artists, which included Cornell's assisting Duchamp on the assembly of his edition de ou par Marcel Duchamp ou Rrose Selavy (commonly referred to as the Boite-en-valise)."--BOOK JACKET. "Both artists were intrigued by the connection between art and the found object, and they shared a fascination with replicated images and the processes of reproduction. They had parallel interests in optical devices, ephemeral mediums (such as glass, dust, and paper), filmmaking, and graphic design. The book focuses in depth on Duchamp's box editions and Cornell's often neglected "explorations," arranged files of printed matter, notes, and ephemera related to individuals or specific themes."--Jacket

Inleiding tot het werk van de Amerikaanse surrealistische kunstenaar (1903-1972)
The Devil's plaything : American surrealism( Visual )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Edwin S. Porter and other early filmmakers used bizarre sets, fantastic costumes, and magic lantern tricks to illuminate their fantasy films. American parody supplied Douglas Fairbanks with enough unusual material to produce the truly surreal When the clouds roll by (1919). The expressionistic Cabinet of Dr. Calagari (1919) influenced American sensibilities throughout the 1920s as seen in Beggar on horseback (1925), The life and death of 9413-a Hollywood extra (1927) and The telltale heart (1928). The emphasis shifted when amateurs J.S. Watson, Jr., Joseph Cornell, and Orson Welles crafted a unique variety of American surrealism on film unfettered by European concerns"--Container
Joseph Cornell's theater of the mind : selected diaries, letters, and files by Joseph Cornell( Book )

7 editions published in 1993 in English and Italian and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Joseph Cornell is at once a legendary yet living presence in American art. His famous boxes, with their ineffably perfect choice of elements - the stuffed birds, the buttons and toys, the fragments of old theatrical posters, the poignant allusions to the worlds of the 19th century ballet and opera - are some of the most recognizable signatures in all of 20th century art. This book is the first extended selection of Cornell's diaries and other written material to be published, and from his writings Cornell emerges as a deeply dedicated and conscious artist, though one whose personality was every bit as unusual as many had perceived. Cornell used his diaries as he used his boxes, to capture and preserve his passing feelings, his momentary urges, and his anguished hesitations. He was an incessant and brilliant recorder of his thoughts as he considered his art, or traveled to New York to haunt antiquarian bookstores and shops where he collected material for his boxes. We see here his deep immersion in French symbolist poetry and his intense interest in his surrealist contemporaries. We see also his plangent yearning for "les sylphides." the fairies of the ballet world who seemed to be reincarnated for him in the form of certain waitresses, dancers, actresses, and shopgirls of his own world. Cornell corresponded with an astonishing range of people including Parker Tyler, Marianne Moore, Tony Curtis, Robert Motherwell, and Susan Sontag. His letters were often sent in the form of collages, and several of them are reproduced in this book. Mary Ann Caws has edited these diaries from a vast and prolix collection of scribbled notes and journals left by Cornell. Her text, which provides an extended introduction to the life and work of Cornell, traces the unique correspondence of the life, the art, and the writings of a great American artist. In addition to John Ashbery's foreword, an appreciation of Cornell by Robert Motherwell is published here for the first time
