Livingston Public Library to Host Lecture on “Uncovering a Masterpiece”

 

The Livingston Public Library will host a lecture on “Uncovering A Masterpiece” on Wednesday, April 29th at 7pm. Mallory Mortillaro created an international sensation when - as a part-time cataloguer for the Hartley Dodge Foundation - she identified and authenticated an Auguste Rodin sculpture of Napoleon Bonaparte hiding in plain sight in Madison Borough Hall. Mortillaro will discuss her role as an archivist for the Hartley Dodge Foundation and the lengthy research process which led to this marble bust being authenticated as a genuine Rodin, and loaned to one of the largest museums in the country. 

Mallory Mortillaro serves as the Curator of Collections for the Hartley Dodge Foundation in Madison, NJ.  Hired to catalog the artwork housed inside of the Hartley Dodge Memorial, she uncovered a Rodin marble bust of Napoleon, a piece 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 continues to oversee and research the collection of the Hartley Dodge Foundation.  She graduated from Drew University in 2013 where she studied art history and English. In 2015 she graduated from Drew’s Caspersen School of Graduate Studies.

The program is free and open to all, for more information visit www.livingstonlibrary.org or call (973) 992-4600.
