Program Description

Event Details

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.

Mallory holds a BA and MAT, both from Drew University.  She balances her work as an Art Historian with teaching 7th grade English.  She lives in Whippany, New Jersey with her husband.

This program is a collaboration among the North Castle, John C. Hart, Scarsdale, and Pelham Libraries.
