    About The Work

    Hotel du Nord was created in 1972 the last year of the artist's life, after Cornell's iconic sculpture Hotel du Nord (Little Durer), a chef d'oeuvre of assemblage which incorporates a reproduction of the famous self-portrait by Albrecht Durer at age 13, who was one of the most significant artists of the Northern Renaissance. In Hotel du Nord, the incorporation of portraiture is multi-layered, representing Cornell's respect for the great artists who have preceded him as well as his interest in the formal qualities found in the pictures themselves. The fact that Cornell would choose his 1950s masterpiece Hotel du Nord as the subject of this stunning silkscreen, published by Brooke Alexander in 1972  speaks to the importance of the work in the artist's entire oeuvre.
