Victoria ThorsonVictoria Thorson (born January 13, 1943) is a New York-based sculptor, editor and art historian. She is most known for being one of the world's leading authenticators of French Sculptor Auguste Rodin's drawings, and, along with Kirk Varnedoe, was one of the first to discover fake Rodin drawings in numerous major private and public collections.
Thorson is the daughter of painter Ruth Rogers-Altmann, and the granddaughter of architect Arnold Karplus.
In 1975 Thorson wrote ''Rodin Graphics: A Catalogue Raisonne of Drypoints and Book Illustrations'', the catalogue raisonné for Rodin, making it the accepted reference book for all known prints of the renowned sculptor.
Thorson's ''Oculus Sculpture'' was acquired by The Octagon (Roosevelt Island) in 2006 and remains there on permanent display, and her sculptural artwork ''BassWood Bodies'' is on view at the Garrison Art Center in Garrison, New York in Fall, 2018. Provided by Wikipedia
