A Picture Rarely Seen: Joseph Cornell Centenary

Program 2: A Picture Rarely Seen

This program of restored early films from Cornell’s unique private collection provides insight into the sources, materials, inspirations and obsessions of the artist. It includes fantasy trickfilms, nickleodeon shorts, early animations and classic Méliès that Cornell selected for a film soiree in 1949 at A New Art School, New York City. Among the films: A Picture Rarely Seen, Unusual Cooking, Hanky Panky Card Tricks, Feuillade’s When Leaves Fall, Méliès’ The Knight of Black Art, Metamorphosis and Loie Fuller.
