The Discovery of a Masterpiece

Wednesday, January 267:00—8:00 PMZoomBigelow Free Public Library54 Walnut St., Clinton, MA, 01510

Mallory Mortillaro serves as the Curator of Collections for the Hartley Dodge Foundation in Madison, NJ. 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 1930s. After a year of research the piece was authenticated as an official work by Auguste Rodin. Mallory shares 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.
