I have been looking at so many contemporary
artist-collectors, that I thought I would revisit
one of the greats. One who has clearly influence many:
Joseph Cornell. Cornell searched the shops of New York for all
kinds of bric-a-brac and ephemera. His exquisite
assembages and boxes are simply fantastic.
Cornell pieced together miniature worlds. He created
tiny aviaries and celestial wonders inside his boxes.
Here are just a few to pique your interest!
