Marino Marini (1901–1980)

Estorick Collection, London

(b Pistoia, 27 Feb. 1901; d Viareggio, 6 Aug. 1980). One of the outstanding Italian sculptors of the 20th century, also a painter, lithographer, and etcher. His travels (particularly his visits to Paris) brought him into contact with many distinguished modern artists (Braque, Giacometti, Gonzales, Maillol, Picasso—to name but a few), but he did not ally himself with any avant-garde movements, remaining essentially isolated in his artistic aims.
