Marino Marini: Painting "Marino from Shakespeare II, Tafel VIII" (1978)

One of the most favorite subjects for Marino Marini was a horse. The choice of his motives took root from the artist's studio in Monza where he lived in the 30s. The studio was situated close to the horse stall, so he was just forced to address this subject. The interplay and symbolism of a horse and a rider are present in Marini's sculptures as well as drawings, where the artist moves in the field of tension between abstraction and objectivity.

Original color aquatint, mordant and drypoint etching, 1978. From the series of 8 sheets. Edition: 75 copies in Arabic numbering + 50 copies in Roman numbering + 20 artist copies labeled with P.A. (offered here) on Arches-Buetten, signed by hand. Catalog raisonne Guastalla 363. Motif size 48,5 x 38 cm. Sheet format 76,5 x 57 cm. The format in the frame 74 x 60 cm as illustrated.

Marino Marini, 1901-1980, is considered one of the most important artists of our time.

Already at the age of 16 he began to study at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence, at 28 he was appointed Professor of Sculpture at the Art School Villa Reale in Monza. His great success began with his participation in the Venice Biennale in 1932. At the end of the 40s the international breakthrough came with his famous figures of horsemen.

His pictures live from the noticeable tension between dynamic and static forms. The Marino Marini Museum opened in 1973 in Milan honours his great life's work.
