On Tuesday March 20th, Barbara Cinelli, curator of the exhibition Marino Marini. Visual Passions, conversed with the artist Mimmo Paladino, who’s artwork Il visconte dimezzato (1998) can be found in the Peggy Guggenheim Collection. During the course of his artistic career, the famous artist from Campania has faced the theme of the horse several times and he had achieved magnificent results like Marino.
At Ca’ Foscari University’s Santa Margherita Auditorium, Barbara Cinelli compared the careers of both the artists and Paladino himself has celebrated some Marino’s characteristics such as, for example, the attention to the pictorial rendering of plastic surfaces.
Paladino later declared that he had drawn important suggestions from the Tuscan artist, admiring above all his love for Etruscan art, generally considered less successful than the classical one, but decidedly closer to reality.
The final phase of the meeting, during which the audience interacted directly with the Master introducing other topics, was also very interesting.
The event was organized in collaboration with the Ca’ Foscari University.
