About This Item

Deborah Solomon

No artist ever led a stranger life than Joseph Cornell, inventor of the “Cornell box” and a seminal influence on movements from Surrealism to Pop Art. From a wealth of first-hand sources, Deborah Solomon has fashioned the definitive biography of one of America’s most powerful and unusual modern artists.

“Masterly…a meticulously researched and deeply considered examination…Solomon brings to [Cornell’s] life a lucid intelligence, an incisive knowledge of art history and a rare sensibility.” -- Washington Post Book World

“Energetic, lavishly detailed, and boldly interpretive…As perfectly composed, richly nuanced and quietly surprising as one of Cornell’s boxes.” -- Chicago Tribune

“Makes Cornell’s inner life palpably real…[Solomon’s] obvious passion for the artist’s work helps her to explicate the mysteries of his elliptical art for the lay reader.” -- New York Times
