Marino Marini was born in 1901 in Italy and died in 1980.
She started his artistic career creating paintings and drawings, but, throughout his life, has devoted himself primarily to sculpture. Marino’s creations sought to interpret classical themes – female nude, portrait bust and equestrian figure - in light of modern concerns and with modern techniques.
The content of his artworks is set by the consciousness of the human as well as the spiritual and aesthetic nature of life. The variety of techniques employed by Marini offers a testimony of the artist’s interest in researching different forms of expression.
