Joseph Cornell (born Nyack, New York on 24 December 1903 – died Queens, New York on 29 December 1972) was an American sculptor, collagist, & film-maker, who is generally credited with being the first artist to elevate shadow-box assemblage to the status of high art, becoming one of its greatest practitioners.
