Bronze has long been used by sculptors to create complex and beautiful forms, three-dimensional realizations of the most vivid human emotions and experiences. The outstanding collection of European bronze sculptures formed by Peter Marino is built around an exploration of the human form, as depicted in this lustrous and sensuous material. With a special focus on French and Italian bronzes of the High Baroque, the collection includes masterpieces by some of the greatest sculptors of their age, among them Ferdinando Tacca, Giovanni Battista Foggini, Robert Le Lorrain, and Corneille van Cleve. The bronzes say much about the cultural preoccupations of their age, from the eternal fascination with the ancient world, to more modern concerns, such as contemporary theater and the legacy of great modern sculptors. Above all, the bronzes in the Marino collection are wonderful works of art, whose beauty and power speak across the centuries to today's audiences.
