アートディーラーのGeorgesBergesは、さまざまなバイヤーの名前は秘密にされると言います. But Hunter’s art is being priced between $ 75,000 そして50万–新人にとって印象的な金額, particularly one with no formal training.
But before anyone gets too impressed, let’s think for a minute how convenient this arrangement might be for anyone wanting to buy access to the アメリカ合衆国大統領.
Art is subjective. Who is to say just how much any piece is worth? The purchases are confidential. Who is to know if it’s a foreign government, a drug cartel, or a Ukrainian oligarch buying access to the artist or his family?
Given the history of this particular son of this particular president, who could blame an oligarch for wanting to try?
We already know Hunter Biden has a history of leveraging his relationship with his father to score lucrative business deals and board positions. We already know President Biden has a history of meeting with his son’s clients and lying about it.
Even if everything about this were above board, it’s a magnet for corruption. And I don’t think for a minute that everything about this is above board. With an art show scheduled in New York this fall, Hunter Biden’s new status as a serious artist is an open invitation to influence buyers.
