    A 17th-century Baroque painting spotted hanging in a New York church

    Thomas Ruggio, assistant professor of visual arts at Iona College, said he was visiting The Holy Family Church in New Rochelle earlier this year when a painting on the wall caught his eye.

    This was the long-lost, 17th-century Baroque painting that was spotted hanging in a New York church.

    The church said in a statement Monday that the painting had been donated sometime in the early 1960s by a former monsignor, who had purchased it from an unidentified London gallery.

    The parish agreed to loan the painting to Iona College, which said it will be on display at the New Rochelle campus for the next three months.
