Marino Marini (Italian, 1901-1980)

Trained as a painter in Florence, Italian artist Marino Marini (1901-1980) was a renowned sculptor, painter, and graphic artist. In 1928 Marini traveled to Paris, where he developed a close association with fellow artists Henry Moore and Pablo Picasso. Deeply affected by the suffering he witnessed growing up in war ravaged Italy, Marini favored celebratory subjects that reflected his optimistic view of the human spirit. His simple compositions are dominated by lively colors and the recurrent themes of horses, acrobats, and dancers- elements which comprise a personal symbolic vocabulary while evoking an immediate sense of transcendent joy.
