A mixed media collage with graphite and paper elements featuring a figure of a heron by American artist Joseph Cornell (1903-1972). Cornell was born in Nyack, New York and attended Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts. He lived primarily in New York City from 1929. A collage album made by surrealist Max Ernst inspired Cornell to make his signature boxes, something he began in the early 1930s. He had no training for these objects that were filled with items such as thimbles, bells, sequins, theatre mementoes, and other everyday objects, some of them from the 19th century. The combinations challenged the viewers' imaginations because they had unusual juxtapositions and played visual tricks. Cornell did collages and box constructions in which images and objects convey an aura of mysterious innocence.
Mixed media collage with graphite and paper elements, signed on verso, and housed in original molded wooden frame under glass with linen inset. Dimensions: 13.13 in h x 10 in w, sight; 18.13 in h x 14.13 in w, framed.
