Marino Marini 1901 - 1980
Marino Marini, sculptor, painter and graphic artist, was born in Pistoia, Italy in 1901. He enrolled at the ‘Accademia di Belli Arti’ in Florence in 1917. While he was still an art student, mediterranean antiquity, international Gothic style and medieval rennaissance had a formative influence on him. From 1928 the artist made several lengthy visits to Paris.
Marino Marini drew on the tradition of Etruscan and Northern European sculpture in developing his major themes of the female nude, the portrait bust, and the equestrian figure. The subject of the horse and rider symbolised for him a primeval or mythical harmony between man and nature. Marino Marini died in 1980.
