(Headline USA) Hunter Biden’s art dealer claimed this week that the first son is one of the most “influential” artists of our time.
George Berges, the Soho gallery owner who has worked with Biden on a number of art shows, said Hunter’s work reflects the “unrelenting divinity within each of us.”
“I represent Hunter Biden because I feel that not only his art merits my representation, but because his personal narrative, which gives birth to his art, is very much needed in the world,” Berges said.
Biden is “one of the most consequential artists in this century,” Berges continued.
“His is a story of perseverance; Hunter’s story reflects what I believe is the beauty of humanity, judged not by the fall, but by having the strength to rise up, by having the character required to change and the courage to do it.
“Hunter Biden’s art reflects all of that and more. His art gives us hope; it reminds us that tomorrow brings a new day, a new beginning, a new possibility,” Berges added.
The world “needs” Biden’s art “more than ever,” Berges said. “In a world that beats us down, we need art in our lives that reminds of the unrelenting divinity within each of us.”
Berges refused to say whether he would cooperate with a request from House Republicans to hand over information about who purchased Biden’s art. He told the New York Post that his legal representatives would be the ones to contact, because “my singular focus has always been, and will continue to be, the integrity of our artists and the privacy of our art collectors.”
House Republicans said they plan to get the information from Berges one way or the other. If he refuses to comply with their requests, they can vote to compel his evidence and testimony with a subpoena.
“For over a decade, the Biden family has profited from Joe Biden’s positions as a public official,” Comer wrote in a letter to Berges. “Your arrangement with Hunter Biden raises serious ethics concerns and calls into question whether the Biden family is again selling access and influence.”
