A House investigation was launched into possible influence-peddling by Hunter Biden’s outrageously expensive artwork. Georges Berges the son’s unsavory art dealer insists that everything is in order. Berges claims the artwork is “important” and predicts Hunter will be “one the most consequential artists of this century.”
Berges stated, “I am aware that there is a lot of politics involved at this moment which is a shame since his work isn’t only good but it’s also important.” “Hunter Biden will be a major artist in the 21st century because the world is more dependent on his art than ever.”
Art experts would disagree. Sebastian Smee (a Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post art critic) stated that Hunter’s paintings weren’t very great in 2021.
Chris Cillizza was working at CNN at the time, and Smee stated that “most great artists, regardless of what style of art they create, have been trying all their lives to make art.” They are completely dedicated to what they do. Biden appears to be a bit of an amateur, according to me.
“If I were a museum curator, I would struggle to find compelling reasons to share it with the public,” Smee added and described Hunter’s artwork, some of which was given a price tag of half a million dollars, looks much like what you might find in a café. “You see a certain kind of art in coffee shops, and some of it is OK and a lot of it is bad, and sometimes it’s surprisingly good. But you wouldn’t, unless you were related to the artist, spend more than $1,000 on it.”
The comments of Berges will not be able to dissuade Republican efforts to expose the influence-peddling scheme that gives the art its greatest value. Berges has a murky past. He was once arrested for making terrorist threats and attacking with a deadly weapon. He is also believed to have strong ties with China.
