Pocket Watches by Joseph Cornell

It gets me excited to see artwork that I have never seen before, such as these pocket watches from 1943-44 by Joseph Cornell, who is one of my favorite artists. Gorgeous! He loved cobalt blue!
There is a show at Schroeder, Romero & Shredder gallery that looks like a winner:

Joseph Cornell, Witold Gordon, Leon Kelly, Louis Marcoussis, Man Ray:

The title means "Soothsayers".

On view at 531 W. 26th St. NYC until April 9.

You are welcome. It looks like a great show ...not just the Cornell watches, but everything.
