Manuel Marin

Born in Murcia, Spain in 1942, Manuel Marin became a bullfighter at age 16 before travelling to England where he worked as an assistant to Henry Moore.

Moving to the USA, he developed a love for mobile sculpture, especially the work of Alexander Calder, whose influence can clearly be seen in the materials and primary colours of the fine works on show here.

While acknowledging Calder's influence, Marin made his sculptures structurally more robust than Calder's without diminishing their elegance and poised equilibrium. 

He died in 2007; the works on show here come from his studio via the artist's widow.
