A painting by American artist Roy Lichtenstein of a large electric cord, valued at some $4 million, is back with its rightful owner 42 years after it vanished while in the hands of an art restorer. Officials from the FBI and the U.S. attorney's office in Manhattan handed the work over to a smiling Barbara Bertozzi Castelli on Tuesday, ending a mystery that began in 1970 when Castelli's late husband, art dealer Leo Castelli, sent the painting out for cleaning. Castelli had acquired the painting in the 1960s for about $750 and had displayed it at his New York City gallery.

"I'm as old as a tree," Leo Castelli says, winding up a conversation on his long and illustrious career as a contemporary art dealer. "But when people think of being 88, they picture some old man with white hair who doesn't move very easily anymore, so I think I stay pretty young." He's right on both counts.
