Exciting Discoveries in Art History with Mallory Mortillaro

Thursday, March 23, 2023

Who doesn’t love learning about a priceless painting found in an attic? Or a sculpture sitting for decades in a public garden, only to be found out as a Renaissance treasurer? After finding herself in the middle of her own art history discovery when she uncovered a Rodin sculpture sitting in New Jersey town hall, Mallory Mortillaro learned just how many times this has happened before. This lecture explores the stories of ten important and valuable works of art that had been rediscovered in unexpected places. The program explores a brief background of each piece, artist, and how the piece got to be lost, and then found.

Mallory joined us last year to talk about her lost Rodin, and we're thrilled to have her back for another fascinating look at the mysteries of the art world. Don't miss it!

This event will be held on Zoom. To join us, register online, and we will email you the link shortly before the program.
