Marino Marini was an Italian artist best known for his figurative equestrian sculptures. Throughout his life, he would return to the theme of a horse and rider. Born on February 27, 1901 in Pistoia, Italy, he studied painting at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence, but turned to sculpture soon after graduating. In 1936, he received the Prize of the Quadriennale of Rome and in 1944 his work was included in a group survey of Italian art at The Museum of Modern Art in New York. A museum in the former church of San Pancrazio in Florence is dedicated to Marini’s work examples of which may also be found in museums such as the Civic Gallery of Modern Art in Milan, the Tate Collection, The Angel of the City at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Venice, the Norton Simon Museum, Museum de Fundatie and the Hirschhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden Washington, D.C.
