Virtual Lecture: Discovering a Masterpiece

Wednesday, January 26, 7:00-8:00pm EST, Free

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. Presented in partnership with the Bigelow Public Library, Chelmsford Public Library, Danvers Peabody Institute Library, and Groton Public Library.
