Discovery of a Masterpiece
June 9 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Mallory Mortillaro, local curator of Hartley Dodge Memorial in Madison, NJ, discovers a Rodin masterpiece lost to the art world since the 1930’s.
Presenter Mallory Mortillaro serves as the curator of collections for the Hartley Dodge Foundation in Madison, N.J. While she was cataloging the artwork housed inside of the Hartley Dodge Memorial, she uncovered a masterpiece that had been lost to the art world since the 1930’s.
After a year of research, the piece was authenticated as an official work by Auguste Rodin. Mortillaro will share the story of how a simple art cataloging project evolved into a search for a mysterious piece’s provenance, and became one of the biggest art finds in recent history.
Mortillaro holds a bachelor’s and master’s degree, both from Drew University.
