Wetterling Gallery is proud to present the exhibition 'Joseph Cornell’s Holiday' by Sir Peter Blake. The American artist Joseph Cornell (1903- 1972) has been a great inspiration for Peter Blake. Cornell is sometimes referred to as Americas first surrealist, working with shadow boxes in which he arranged fragments of found objects. He also made films and collages. Joseph Cornell lived a rather isolated life taking care of his mother and disabled brother, basically never leaving the New York City area.

In the exhibition 'Joseph Cornell’s Holiday', Peter Blake sends out Cornell on a travel through Europe. In a large number of paper collages Blake lets Cornell visit places he couldn’t travel to in his own life.
