Lives and works in Poughkeepsie, New York
Harry Roseman is a sculptor,
who currently teaches at Vassar College, and who regularly exhibits
his work in galleries and museums nationally and abroad. Roseman
also spent years as the fulltime studio assistant to the reclusive
artist Joseph Cornell, and was one of the few people that ever spent
any extended time with him. During that period he took many photographs
of the artist at his home on Utopia Parkway in Flushing, Queens.
This portrait, from the back during a quiet moment, shows us something
of the mystery of Cornell's enigmatic, reclusive life. It was taken
in the year Cornell died.
