The Discovery of a Masterpiece
February 15, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
While cataloging the artwork housed inside of the Hartley Dodge Memorial,
art historian and educator Mallory Mortillaro 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. Mallory
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.
This is a joint event of the Palisades, Orangeburg, and Tappan Libraries.
