The Italian artist Marino Marini (1902-1980) book of sculpture. He is one of the most celebrated sculptors of the modern ages. Although the body of his work includes paintings, drawings, and prints, it is as a sculptor that he speaks to us most eloquently, in a voice that reverberates with the wisdom of the ancients and the anguish of modern conflict and loss. The most original and compelling aspects of Martini's mature sculpture are the primitivist motifs and symbols that intentionally recall the Archaic period in Greece. The long-vanished and mysterious Etruscan civilization that predated the Romans in Tuscany. This book is depository of artistic expression through sculpture. An amazing book of art! additionally, the marvelous text accompanying the art works is by Sam Hunter, a leading American art critic and historian. A professor in the Department of Art and Archeology at Princeton University, and Curator of Modern Art at the University Museum - has achieved international recognition for his pioneering exhibitions, including the first one-man show of Jackson Pollock.
