Marino Marini

Front Cover
Skira, 1999 - Art - 328 pages
Marino Marini is undoubtedly one of the most outstanding figures on the scene of European sculpture in our century. His production, ranging from the early Thirties to the end of the Seventies, is characterised by great expressive intensity resulting from a powerful plastic synthesis of material, form and space. His artistic approach, that uses just a few themes to express the entire world of his connections and considerations about man and life, has a density of meaning and an evocative capacity that make his work extremely modern. After the introduction by Rosa Maria Letts (director of the European Academy in London) the book contains two essays by Erich Steingröber and Mario De Micheli, followed by a text by Luigi Cavadini on the years the Tuscan artist spent in Switzerland, the catalogue of the works and an exhaustive biographical notice edited by Laura Lorenzoni. Over a hundred and twenty sculptures, paintings and drawings document the span of Marini's thought and artistic evolution from his beginnings to his full maturity, through some of his greatest masterpieces.
