A 17th century painting stolen by the Nazis from a Jewish German art curator in Paris who was later murdered at Auschwitz was returned to the late owner's daughter at a ceremony in New York on Tuesday.

The painting "Portrait of a Man" by Italian Giovanni Battista Moroni was among items looted from August Liebmann Mayer's collection by the Nazis after Germany's invasion of Paris.

The painting, which had been held at the Louvre in Paris, was recovered by US authorities in cooperation with the French government.
