Biography

Born in 1901 in Pistoia, Italy, Marino Marini embarked on his journey at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence, where he dedicated himself to mastering sculpture. His early years were deeply influenced by the rich traditions of Renaissance art, a theme that resonated throughout his body of work.

Initially drawing inspiration from Etruscan art and the sculptures of Arturo Martini, his work developed an archaic quality. However, it was his fascination with the horse and rider motif that defined his legacy. This theme, recurring throughout his career, became a medium through which he explored the anxieties of the post-war world, often depicting his figures in states of tension. This symbolised the complex relationship between man and animal, and broadly, between humanity and the modern environment.

Marini's sculptures, typically cast in bronze, are distinguished by their stylised, abstracted forms and the emotional resonance they convey. His most notable works include the series of equestrian statues entitled Cavalli E Cavalieri, which reflect the evolution of his style to a more dramatic, almost apocalyptic representation of the theme.

Beyond sculpture, Marini was an accomplished painter, often employing a vibrant palette to create compositions that echoed the sculptural concerns of form and space. His paintings, though less renowned than his sculptural works, speak to his versatility and depth as an artist.

Marini's career was heightened by numerous accolades and exhibitions, including a significant retrospective at the Palazzo Venezia in Rome and participation in the Venice Biennale, where he was awarded the Grand Prize for Sculpture in 1952. His works are housed in prestigious collections worldwide, including the Tate Gallery in London and the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
