Joseph Cornell, 1971.

On Saturday 26.9.15 I went to the Joseph Cornell: Wanderlust show at The Royal Academy in corporate London Village. I’ve been a fan for a while but had never seen his work before. Despite the crowds I managed to enjoy looking around. Overheard comment: “He was a bit of a nutter wasn’t he?” Hard to disagree with that. A kindred spirit of Georges Méliès.
