Marini Marino

Born: 27/02/1901

Deceased: 06/08/1980

The Italian sculptor and graphic artist Marino Marini has spend most of his artistic career exposing the subject of horses and humans. During the 1930s he already gained fame through solo exhibitions and participations in the Venice Biennale, the Milan Triennale and the Quadriennale of Rome. He later took part in the documenta I, II and III. Together with Albert Giacometti and Henry Moore he is one of the outstanding sculptors of the 20th century. Influenced by the Etruscan art of his Tuscany home he created classically strict, archaic sculptures, sometimes painting or scratching the surface. As a graphic artist Marini created very colour-intensive, expressive litographies and colour etchings.
