This event has ended.
Marino Marini (1901-1980), one of Italy’s most celebrated twentieth-century sculptors, is famed for his sculptures of horses and riders. Early in his career, he produced paintings, but from the 1940s on he made sculpture the core of his work, fascinating people with a style that concisely expresses a powerful life force. His being awarded the Grand Prize for Sculpture at the Venice Biennale in 1952 established his reputation internationally. He also made printmaking a major part of his creative practice, producing a large number of prints. The Ishibashi Foundation Collection includes lithographs that Marini created between 1943 and 1965, making possible seeing changes in his style over two decades. This exhibition displays twenty-five works by Marini from the collection, including two sculptures, twenty-one prints, one painting, and one book, presenting this artist’s multifaceted creative activities and their captivating results.
