Boston Museum to Return Painting Looted During World War II

Boston (AP) -- A work of art by a 17th century Dutch painter that was reported looted from a Hungarian bank during World War II is being returned to the heirs of its rightful owner, Boston's Museum of Fine Arts said Monday.

“View of Beverwijk" by Salomon van Ruysdael has been in the museum's collection since 1982, when it was acquired from a London dealer with no information about its history other than that it had come from a Swiss collection, the museum said in a statement.
