Shown is the painting "The Vision of St. Bruno" in Dallas on Oct. 23. The lost painting by Italian master Sebastiano Ricci has turned up in Texas after a 300-year journey that has seen it change hands from a European nobleman playboy to a Missouri fur trader and finally to generations of an American family. Discovered in a Dallas warehouse after the family asked an art expert to take a look at it, Ricci's painting will be offered by Dallas-based Heritage Auction Galleries.
