Marini, Marino märē´nō märē´nē [key], 1901–66, Italian sculptor. Marini is best known for his many vigorous sculptures of horses and horsemen (e.g., Horse and Rider, 1949–50), although he has created notable portrait busts, group statues, and paintings and drawings. After 1955 he tended toward a more dramatic expression of form. His works are in many European and American museums.
