The Long Hill Township Library will host an online lecture on “A Rodin in Madison: Discovery of a Masterpiece” on Wednesday, Feb. 10 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. It is all very exciting and right in our backyard!
Please join the Library for an evening with Mallory.
