An actor known for his role as an Italian Mafia assassin is now promoting and exhibiting an old master painting of a bloodied, dying saint.

Federico Castelluccio, who played the ponytailed hired gun Furio Giunta on “The Sopranos” TV series, has rediscovered the artwork, a depiction of St. Sebastian said to have been painted by Guercino in the 1630s. This week, in its first American showing, the painting went on view at the Princeton University Art Museum after its European debut in a survey of St. Sebastian portraits at a castle near Turin, Italy, last year.
