Hunter Biden’s first son was protected by his art dealer, who said that he would be “one of most consequential artists this century.”
Georges Berges’s praise for Biden is amid reports that a congressional investigation has begun, under the leadership of James Comer (R.KY), House Oversight Committee Chairman. Comer demands that Berges turn over all communications between his gallery and the White House concerning the first son’s artwork deals.
Berges stated that Hunter Biden is my representative because I believe his art deserves it. “His personal narrative, which gave birth to his art, is also very much needed in this world,” Berges said in a statement to Fox News Digital. His story is one of perseverance. Hunter’s story is an example of what I consider the beauty and strength of humanity. Hunter has the character to change and the courage it takes to succeed. Hunter Biden’s artwork reflects all that and more. His art is uplifting and reminds us to believe in tomorrow, that we can start over, that there’s a new day ahead, that there’s a new chance, that there are new possibilities.
He said that Hunter Biden would be one of the most important artists this century, as the world has more need for his art than ever. “Art is essential in a world that beats us down. It reminds us of the unrelenting divinity that we all have.”
Comer was not kind to Biden’s art and called it “arguably worthless.”
Comer wrote that Hunter’s art dealer [Georges] Berges has made it clear that he plans to be the lead guy in China for art.” Hunter would be foolish to pay top dollar for objects that are undoubtedly worthless. He’s no Pablo Picasso. As Chairman of House Oversight Committee, we will continue to press for transparency and answers so that the American people can find out who Hunter is buying his art.
According to Comer, the first son sold artwork at prices ranging from $55,000 to $225,000. Comer was supported by fellow House Oversight Committee members Reps. Lauren Boebert, Clay Higgins (R–LA), and Paul Gosar. Boebert argued that it is possible that the buyers were members of the Chinese Communist Party looking to purchase access to his father.
