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

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 249 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
Dime-store alchemy : the art of Joseph Cornell by Charles Simic( Book )

4 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and French and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The task Charles Simic undertakes in this diverse, essentially unclassifiable book is one of illumination and tribute. Rather than constrict his response to Joseph Cornell's surreal art to the objective terms of critical analysis, Simic sets out to recreate in a different medium - the written language of the poet - the experience of viewing Cornell's enigmatic constructions of boxes, collages, and film. Partly an appreciation of Cornell's work, partly an appropriation of his method, Dime-Store Alchemy interweaves elements of art history, poetry, and biography in a series of short texts that create a kind of poetic equivalent to Cornell's visual art. The artist's premise that the world is beautiful, but not sayable becomes Simic's as well. From incisive meditations on Cornell's methods and aims, Simic moves to create his own assemblages in the spirit of Cornell and the poets he admired - Dickinson, Whitman, and Poe. The resulting prose poems are studded with the same unlikely combinations of found objects and dime-store jewels that inhabit Cornell's boxes. Simic's evocative images, like Cornell's, defy rational explanation but instead invite the viewer to participate in the imaginative life of the art, "to make up stories about what one sees." This highly personal consideration of one of the most important visual artists of the twentieth century conveys the same spirit of chance, the same playful celebration of the miraculous properties of the commonplace, that distinguishes the work of an artist who is, as Simic writes, "in the end unknowable."
The amateur as auteur discovering paradise in pictures by David Shepard( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 134 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 and surrealism( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Joseph Cornell (1903₆1972), the American pioneer of collage, montage, and assemblage art, is sometimes regarded as a solitary star within the constellation of great Surrealists. The essays in 'Joseph Cornell and Surrealism' consider connections between Cornell and the Surrealist group during the 1930s and 1940s, during Cornell₂s 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 his best-known works--the collages, small constructions of found objects, and classic shadow boxes--he took key Surrealist methods in new directions. The essays also examine Cornell₂s achievement in other formats, including his ground-breaking collage film and the open-ended and nonlinear archives of printed materials that he called ₃explorations, ₄ as well as the art, literature, music, and dance that nourished his unconventional artistic output.00The essays in this volume for the catalogue Joseph Cornell et les surréalistes à New York, published to accompany the exhibition of the same name that was co-organized by the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Lyon and The Fralin Museum of Art at the University of Virginia.00Translation of the French original edition from 2013: 9782754107273

The Devil's plaything American surrealism by Bruce Charles Posner( Visual )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 12 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 et les surréalistes à New York by Museum voor Schone Kunsten (Lyon)( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in French and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le présent ouvrage accompagne l'exposition "Joseph Cornell et les surréalistes à New York" présentée au musée des Beaux-Arts de Lyon, du 18 octobre 2013 au 10 février 2014. Bien que reconnu comme un des acteurs majeurs de l'art américain de la première moitié du XXe siècle, Joseph Cornell a souvent été présenté comme un satellite dans les recherches artistiques de son temps et notamment dans la constellation surréaliste. Depuis l'exposition itinérante organisée par le Museum of Modern Art de New York présentée en 1981 au musée d'Art moderne de la Ville de Paris, aucune exposition monographique ne lui a été consacrée en France par un musée alors que plusieurs galeries à Paris se sont intéressées à lui : galerie 1900-2000 ; Baudouin Lebon ; Karsten Greve ; Virginia Zabriskie
