Digital Program: The Discovery of a Masterpiece
10/26/2021 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
Our speaker tells the story of her journey to authenticate a marble bust of Napoleon sculpted by Auguste Rodin, which had been sitting in a New Jersey town hall for almost 80 years. She recounts the story of being hired straight out of college for a part-time art cataloging project and how it morphed into a search for this mysterious piece’s provenance, eventually culminating in its authentication by the world’s leading Rodin expert.
Mallory Mortillaro, our speaker, is the Curator of Collections for the Hartley Dodge Foundation in Madison, NJ.
