The Discovery of a Masterpiece: Mallory Mortillaro’s Story of Authenticating a Lost Work by Auguste Rodin

Thursday, March 3, 2022 @ 7:00 pm 8:00 pm

The Camden Public Library invites you to join us for an evening of art and intrigue!

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 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.
