Calgary Herald - - MOVIES -

A bust of Napoleon by French sculp­tor Au­guste Rodin long thought to be lost has been found on dis­play in a New Jersey borough hall where it sat for 85 years. The bust’s ori­gin was con­firmed in 2015, but of­fi­cials waited to re­veal the mul­ti­mil­lion dol­lar art­work was a lon­glost piece by Rodin. The Record re­ports the own­ers of the bust an­nounced it will be leav­ing the Madi­son borough hall on loan to the Philadel­phia Mu­seum of Art. The au­then­ti­ca­tion was made in per­son by Jerome Le Blay, an in­ter­na­tional ex­pert in mod­ern sculpture.
