NEW YORK -- The U.S. Postal Inspection Service says a stolen Salvador Dali painting has been mailed back to New York from Europe and intercepted at Kennedy International Airport.

The $150,000 work of art was swiped from a Madison Avenue art gallery last week by a man posing as a customer who walked out with the watercolor and ink painting in a shopping bag.

No arrests have been made.

The 1949 painting, "Cartel des Don Juan Tenorio," was part of the Venus Over Manhattan art gallery's very first exhibition. The gallery didn't comment.
