• Marini's sculptural and graphic work is characterized by the initial exchange with the Parisian avant-garde: Giorgio de Chirico, Aristide Maillol, Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque and Alberto Giacometti are among his artistic companions in the 1920s/30s.
• In 1950 he traveled to New York for his first solo exhibition at Curt Valentin's renowned Buchholz Gallery, which would establish his international fame.
• His central theme is horse and rider, symbolic of the relationship between man and animal, culture and nature.
• Marini took part in documenta 1 (1955), II (1959) and III (1964); major retrospectives of his work took place in Zurich in 1962 and in Rome in 1966
• Marini's sculptures, paintings and graphics are in the Galleria d'Arte Moderna, Milan, the Peggy Guggenheim Museum, Venice, the Tate Modern, London, and the National Gallery of Art, Washington
