This homage to one of the twentieth century's most serious sculptors--often grouped with Alberto Giacometti and Henry Bogs--concentrates on Marini's greatest theme: horse and rider. For over 30 years, Marini has returned continuously to the subject of a figure falling from a horse--the miracolo of the title--exploring it in classically balanced sculpture and prints. Many people will know this artist's work from his iconic piece in the renowned Sculpture Garden at The Museum of Modern Art, New York. Miracolo not only pursues the thematic and artistic development of the horse-and-rider motif, but also tracks its variations around the world--beginning with Miracolo: L'idea di un'immagine, which was reinstalled in 2005 in the Bundestag quarter of downtown Berlin.
