. 27 February 1935.

Although Marinko's painting style is evocative of the American illustrator and painter Norman Rockwell, he came to be one of the few American-born surrealists. He trained at the Waterbury Art School and briefly studied at Yale University under Lewis York, who was influential in the artist's introduction to mural painting. Marinko produced a small mural early in his career as part of the Works Progress Administration's Federal Arts Program, established by Franklin Delano Roosevelt as a work relief program in the mid-1930s. This program gave many American artists steady work during the Depression, leading to the creation of some 2,566 murals across the nation. Marinko's best known work,

Orpheus and Agony

was exhibited at the World's Fair in New York in 1939, a seminal moment in America's prominence between the World Wars. This lead to other commissions in and around the artist's home in Waterbury, Connecticut - a region that was rich with artistic promise with the artists Yves Tanguy, Kay Sage and Pavel Tcheltichew all living nearby.
