A Rodin in Madison – The Discovery of a Masterpiece


This special presentation about the discovery of a large marble bust of Napoleon Bonaparte by Auguste Rodin in the council chambers of Madison, NJ was held on December 10 at the Morris Museum.

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 Harley Dodge Memorial she uncovered this masterpiece that has 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.

Nicolas W. Platt, President of the Hartley Dodge Foundation, offered introductory remarks about this remarkable story.

See a video of the presentation at the Morris Museum.
