Mr. Cornell's Dream Boxes Kindle Edition
Dreams and memories were Cornell's inspiration for his iconic boxes, and here they take up whole pages.... An author's note about the last exhibition Cornell attended, a show held exclusively for children, makes his work even more accessible for the picture-book set. This breezy introduction to an uncommon artist serves as a welcoming invitation for budding artists to explore their own creativity.-- "Booklist, June 2014"
Finally, a children's picture book about the artist Joseph Cornell. And for someone whose work was so connected to childhood, memory, and dreams, it's about time. . . . Winter's playful and collagelike illustrations re-create many of his well-known works in a style that complements Cornell's own aesthetic. . . . While concepts and theories about art and artists can often be difficult to present to young children, this picture-book biography is particularly accessible and can serve as an ideal gateway to more advanced books on the subject. Teachers and librarians can use this work to explore a unique contribution at the forefront of modern art; children will be inspired to dream and create on their own.-- "School Library Journal, July 2014"
Winter's lyrical prose is true to the gentle strangeness of Cornell's work.-- "Publishers Weekly, May 2014" --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
