Marino Marini - Piccolo Cavaliere at Portland Art Museum

Marino Marini - Piccolo Cavaliere at Portland Art Museum

We ran into Marino Marini again in the Portland Art Museum. We keep running into Marini. I remember the first time we saw his iconic horseman facing the Grand Canal at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice in 1998.  We then spent an afternoon at “his” museum in Florence in 2007. Later we saw another horseman piece at the Getty Center in 2010.

We went to the Portland Art Museum to see the Rothko Exhibit and afterwards took a stroll through the other parts of the museum and spotted this Marini horseman. This piece is called Piccolo Cavaliere (“Little Horseman”) dated 1949. The bronze piece is 34 3/8 in by 15 3/4 in and is in the Jubitz Center for Modern and Contemporary Art, 1st floor.
