Known as the reclusive surrealist of Utopia Parkway, Queens, Joseph Cornell did collages and box constructions in which images and objects convey an aura of mysterious innocence.  In his will, he left a foundation for making charitable grants from the sales of his art and returns on investments.

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 surreali (showing 500 of 7290 characters).
