Pastel on gray paper affixed at edges to a linen-covered board, 21 3/4" by 25 1/2", unframed, signed at lower right in pencil "MARINO" and dated at lower left in European hand "1959". The image appears to be perhaps a highly abstracted horse or horse head, surrounded by abstracted imagery in electric blues, oranges, reds and greens. For a time I thought this might be a work of the famous Italian modernist Marino Marini (1901-1980), who signed "Marino", but some years back I sent images to the acknowledged expert in Italy and she replied that from what she could see this was definitely not a work by Marino Marini. The drawing is striking and powerful and properly framed it will make quite a conversation piece in home or office. Condition is excellent and fresh. The work was acquired by me in a Fairfield County, Connecticut consignment shop in the early 1990's. A large frame in which I acquired it might possibly be available, but it is not in good condition.
