Despite a lack of formal art training, Joseph Cornell enjoyed a career spanning five decades, exhibiting in major New York City galleries alongside some of the most prolific avant-garde artists of the 1940s, ’50s, and ’60s, including Marcel Duchamp, Salvador Dalí, Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, Willem de Kooning, Franz Kline, Robert Rauschenberg, and Cy Twombly. Inspired by Duchamp’s use of the readymade, Kurt Schwitters’ signature collages, Paul Klee’s childlike perspective, Andy Warhol’s repetitive imagery, and Rauschenberg’s combines, he created an expansive body of work that features collages, films, graphic designs, and his renowned glass-paneled shadow boxes, which he once referred to as “poetic theaters.”
