    More Information: Born in Pistoia, Marini attended the Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence in 1917.  Although he never abandoned painting, he devoted himself primarily to sculpture in 1922.  He is most famous for a series of stylized equestrian statues which feature a man with outstretched arms upon a horse. Marini painted continually throughout his life, his style ranging from portraiture to abstract figurative.  In the mid-1960s. The Marino Marini Museum exhibition was opened in Milan in 1973 and contained a significant portrait collection. A permanent showing was dedicated to Marini in 1976 in Munich, and in 1978 Japan received an exhibition of Marini sculptures and paintings. The Marino Marini Museum opened in 1988 and houses close to 200 pieces, arranged by subject matter.  His work can also be found in the collections of The Guggenheim, New York, and the Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco as well as many others.
