Colour lithographic poster by celebrated sculptor Marino Marini. The artist used black and red to reveal the geometric outline of a horse and rider. Equestrian figures are a recurring theme in Marini's work, symbolising a primeval harmony between man and beast.

Marino Marini
Italian, 1901–1980
Follow

One of Italy’s most celebrated sculptors of the 20th century, Marino Marini primarily produced figurative bronze sculptures, though his practice also included paintings, drawings and etchings. Marini drew on the tradition of Etruscan and northern European sculpture, reinterpreting classical themes such as the female nude, the portrait bust, and the equestrian figure, which he combined with aspects of modernism—in particular exaggerated and elongated forms. Towards the end of his career Marini’s sometimes-monumental sculptures became increasingly abstracted. On trips to Paris and New York, he associated with Giorgio de Chirico, Jean Arp, Max Beckmann, and Alexander Calder, among other major modernist artists.
