Identification of Painting as 17th-century Masterwork Brings Joy to Parish

“Holy Family with the Infant St. John,” a Florentine Baroque by Cesare Dandini, was installed in the 1960s at Holy Family Church in the New York suburb of New Rochelle. Parishioners described it as one of many beautiful artworks at the parish.


Thomas Ruggio positively identified it as one of four similarly themed works by Dandini, likely created in the 1630s.
