Boston - (Impressionist Mess): Fugitive Boston gang leader James 'Whitey' Bulger's involvement in a daring 1990 art robbery has been branded a whitewash following the discovery of a 100 gallon drum of distemper concealed in the art gallery's laundry.

Thirteen paintings by Rembrandt, Vermeer, Degas and Manet were stolen from the Boston expo on 18 March 1990 in a highly professional heist described as a masterpiece by FBI sources.

The most expensive picture, Vermeer's The Concert, was valued at more than $250?million by insurers who have yet to pay out on the robbery.

Investigators have said they suspect an IRA-related gang in Cork, West Ireland, is probably responsible for the crime after two ex-Bulger associates jailed for attempting to smuggle arms to the IRA 'fessed up.

The Madonna With The Big Boobies by Shag-All is believed to form part of the stolen cache.
