Law enforcement officials in the US have released footage of a man wanted for questioning in relation to the theft of 13 art works from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston in 1990. 

The haul, including several paintings by Rembrandt and Degas, is worth an estimated $500m.

United States Attorney Carmen Ortiz said: “Over many months we have engaged in an exhaustive re-examination of the original evidence in this case.

“Our aim has been to ensure that all avenues have been explored in the continuing quest to recover these artworks.

“Today we are releasing video images from the night before the theft -- images which have not previously been seen by the public -- with the hope of identifying an unauthorized visitor to the museum. With the public’s help, we may be able to develop new information that could lead to the recovery of these invaluable works of art.”
