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 myself in the middle of my own art history discovery when I uncovered the provenance of a Rodin sculpture sitting in New Jersey town hall, I learned just how many times this has happened before. This lecture explores the stories of ten different 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.
