A Rodin in Madison: Discovery of a Masterpiece

Mallory Mortillaro, curator at the Hartley Dodge Foundation in Madison, will discuss her discovery of a marble bust of Napoleon Bonaparte by Auguste Rodin.  The sculpture, entitled Napoléon enveloppé dans son rêve, or Napoleon Wrapped in His Dream, is part of the art collection that once belonged to Geraldine Rockefeller Dodge. It has been in the Madison town hall since 1942 when Mrs. Dodge donated the Hartley Dodge Memorial Building to the borough of Madison in honor of her late son, Marcellus Hartley Dodge Jr.  Ms. Mortillaro will discuss her discovery from speculation to authentication and the impact it had on her as an art historian, a teacher, and a person.

Please join us on Tuesday, May 14 at 7 pm.  Pre-registration is requested.  You may sign up online or call the library at 973-635-0603.
