Equine Bronzes
The sculpture of Marilyn Newmark is a vital artistic expression of her love and devotion to horses, around which most of her life revolves. This love of horses extends into the world of reality. She owns horses which are stabled on her Marleny Farm and she has earned colors with Meadowbrook Hounds and the Smithtown Hunt. For years she has shown, driven and hacked her horses.
Miss Newmark was the protege of the late renowned horse illustrator, Paul Brown, and worked with him until his death in 1958. In those years she worked in ceramic and porcelain. Today these sculptures are collectors items.
She first used the medium of bronze in 1970 and since then has won over 12 Gold Medals and 90 Awards at juried national and international art exhibitions. She is an Academician of the National Academy of Design (Ellin P. Speyer Prize, 1974,1993,1999; Artist Fund Prize forthe Finest Sculpture, 1982, certificate of Merit, 1991); Fellow and former Board member of the National Sculpture Society (C.P. Dietch Prize, 1977, Council of American Artists Societies Award, 1972, Bronze Medal, 1986; NSS Mildred Victor Memorial Prize, 1996); a Founding Member and Director of Sculpture of the American Academy of Equine Art; a Vice President of the Society of Animal Artists; a Fellow of the Allied Artists of America (Lindsy Morris Memorial Award, 1980, Gold Medal, 1981,1993, AAA "in Memorium" Award, 1994); Fellow of the American Artists Professional League (Gold Medal, 1974, 1977, medal of Honor, 1987).
Miss Newmark's models are produced as uniques, limited editions or by commission. She has done work for the Franklin Mint, New York Racing Association, Thoroughbred Racing Associations, Professional Horsemen's Association, Thoroughbred Breeders of Kentucky, the Japan Racing Association and many others. Her work is in the National Museum of Racing, Saratoga, New York; Thoroughbred Racing Associations, Elmont, New York; American Saddle Horse Museum and the International Museum of the Horse, both at the Kentucky Horse Park, Lexington, Kentucky.
The work she has done and the awards she has received truly justifies her biographies in "Who's Who in America 2000", "Who's Who in American Art", "Who's Who of American Women", "World's Who's Who of Women", "Who's Who in the World", "Masters of American Sculpture" by Donald Martin Reynolds (Abbeville Press).
"Miss Newmark works in the classic tradition of the 19th century animaliers. Every muscle and tendon is exactly delineated, every detail finished with precision and care. These horses are fashioned with the eye and for the eye of a true connoisseur of horse flesh. This intimate knowledge of her subject, coupled with the detailed realism of her work, invests Newmark's sculptured horses with an impeccable quietude, a timelessness and dignity matched only by the animals themselves."
- American Artist, April, 1971, Margil Malstrom "The Bronze Horses of Marilyn Newmark"
"Her love and appreciation of horses combined with her artistic desire to create, led Marilyn Newmark to expressing the power and beauty of the horse in bronze. Her skill in this expression has brought her international recognition and famous subjects.'
- Saddle and Bridle, October, 1979, 'The Horse in Bronze'
"Newmark's horse poses are never strained, never contrived. These are natural horses, horses one can almost touch and feel and smell. They are not just an artist's concept, but real horses, perfectly miniaturized to scale and frozen in time."
- Equine Images, DeclJan 1992 Bonnie Kreitier, "She Wanted Horses"
