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
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.
Mallory Mortillaro is an art historian and educator. She has ten years of
teaching experience, and has worked on various art research projects for
museums and organizations in the New York metropolitan area. She studied at
Drew University. Mallory resides in New Jersey with her husband.
This is a joint event of the Palisades, Orangeburg, and Tappan Libraries.
