Italian master Marino Marini, (1901 – 1980) who in the early part of the last century explored modernist themes in Paris, is an amazing sculptor … and painter, too. There’s a Marino Marini Museum in Florence – in the Church of San Pancrazio – which has a wonderful collection of his works, spanning his long career. But this post is not about that Marino Marini Museum, rather it’s a photo essay of some of the master sculptor’s works in the Museo Marino Marini in his native Pistoia. The Museum is located in the Palazzo del Tau, a wonderful building from the 1300s and a perfect setting for Marini’s evocative, and even savage, art. It’s a short distance from Florence, but it is well worth the visit.
You can read more about the artist’s life and works – in english – on the Museum site, linked here.
We let the pictures do the talking now.
