Über diesen Titel:


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.

Über den Autor: 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.
