Marino Marini (1901-1980) was among the most famous and successful of all post-war Italian sculptors. This book celebrates the themes for which he was best known: equestrian statuary and female nudes.
Flavio Fergonzi explores the meanings of Marini’s Horses and Riders, and traces their evolution from his first Rider, which scandalised critics at the 1936 Venice Biennale, to the enigmatic, expressionist Miracles and Warriors of the late 1950s, which were highpoints of modern Italian sculpture.
Barbara Cinelli documents Marini’s relations with his London dealer, the Hanover Gallery of Arthur Jeffress and Erica Brausen, and reviews the critical reception of his work in England in the 1950s.
