Marino Marini

Born 1901, Pistoia, Italy.  Died 1990

Marino Marini attended the Academy of Art in Florence. He was in Paris in 1928 and 1929 but returned to Italy to teach at the School of Art at Monza until 1940 when he became Professor of Sculpture at the Brera in Milan. He lived in Switzerland from 1942-46. Influenced by Renaissance and Antique models, Marini started working on the theme of horse and rider in 1935, which from then on was to characterise his work both in sculpture and painting.
