About the artist

Joseph Cornell

A pioneer in the art of assemblage who used the box as a primary art form, Joseph Cornell (1903-1972) became one of America’s most innovative artists as a collagist and filmmaker. The surrealist images he created often lived in shallow wooden boxes, combining painted surfaces with found objects such as Victorian-era dolls, photographs, and other small toys. His otherworldly assemblages often evoked childhood memories and fantastical landscapes by juxtaposing disparate images against one another.

Cornell’s works have sold for millions of dollars on the secondary market, proving his lasting impact as a pioneering assemblagist. His work is in the major collections of international institutions such as the Museum of Modern Art, the Guggenheim Museum, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the Tate, and the Museo Reina Sofia, among many others.
