Marino Marini

I am warming to Marini. A man of poetry, myth and the ancients.
The way he translates this material is attractive to the eye and the soul.
He has few motif's and these few he weaves into endless variations.
Sensitivity and warmth. The Gothic proccesion is there.
He is too recent to copy, but I'd like to hear him speak.
Not talk like a critic, but like a poet.
The critic is always boiling retrospective stew.
I would prefer Marini's prospective contemplation.
( I note that the Estorick Collection has a Library, surely Marini would speak to me there.)
