Marino Marini: Visual Passions

Also in the temporary exhibition space at The Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Venice, is a special display - Marino Marini: Visual Passions, a very good retrospective of the artists oeuvre. Marini was influenced by Etruscan and Northern European art and sculpture, and there are some pieces of sculpture from this period in art that informed his work, alongside the sculpture of some of his contemporaries such as Henry Moore in this exhibition. Marini is famed for his equestrian sculptures depicting man in harmony with the horse, which became increasingly stylised as his artistic technique and voice developed. Many examples are featured here, accompanied by some very sensitively handled sketches, some portraits, and full figure female nudes. The exhibition is a real bonus for visitors to the Peggy Guggenheim Collection and closes at the end of April.
