A painting that has been hanging at California's landmark Hearst Castle for decades has been identified as a 17th century work after two guides noticed a previously undetected monogram and inscription when sunlight illuminated them last fall.Records showed that Hearst bought the painting in 1927, but officials of the Castle, which is now part of the California state parks system, knew little else about it until last fall.In November, tour guide Carson Cargill was leading a group through the Assembly Room when sunlight reflected off a mosaic floor and onto a portion of the painting not usually so vividly illuminated.
