Birds of a Feather:
Joseph Cornell's Homage to Juan Gris

Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York

A shadowy profile of a fedora-topped man, first seen by Cornell in an Oct, 1953 visit to the Sidney Janis Gallery, inspired Cornell to begin a new series: some 18 boxes, two collages, and one sandtray created in homage to Juan Gris, whom he called a "warm fraternal spirit". Completed over a period of 15 years, Cornell's series of Gris shadow boxes is more extensive in number than any other that the artist openly dedicated to one of his admired luminaries.
