Cornell clarified


Ever wonder why everyone raves about those obscure Joseph Cornell boxes? I, for one, thought perhaps they were part of some culture past to which we had lost the key.

Well, four brief explications by Cornell collector Robert Lehrman of some of his own Cornell boxes ran in the Penn alumni magazine, the Pennsylvania Gazette.

The commentaries were captivating and poetic, and were meant to pique interest in a new, picture-loaded book–“Joseph Cornell: Shadowplay … Eterniday”– published for Cornell’s centennial birthday celebration. Lehrman is one of the authors.

Check it out.
