Hunter Biden's art dealer, Georges Bergès, has claimed that Biden will be among "the most consequential artists in this century," according to Fox News Digital.
Some people have been suspicious that the art career of President Joe Biden's son Hunter could facilitate a pay-for-play scheme.
But Bergès has high praise for Hunter Biden and his work.
"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," Bergès said in a statement, according to Fox News Digital. "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."
"Hunter Biden will become one of the most consequential artists in this century because the world needs his art now more than ever," he claimed. "In a world that beats us down, we need art in our lives that reminds of the unrelenting divinity within each of us."
In 2021, Artnet News quoted Bergès as opining that "all the prices that people are saying he's worth right now, 10 years from now that’s going to be a cheap Hunter Biden painting."
House Committee on Oversight and Accountability chair Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.) has asked Bergès to turn over information pertaining to Hunter Biden's artwork and participate in a transcribed interview with committee staff.
"The Committee on Oversight and Accountability is investigating President Joe Biden and his family's foreign and domestic influence peddling schemes," Comer noted in a January 25 letter to Bergès. "During the 117th Congress, Committee Republicans wrote to you requesting information regarding your gallery’s sale of artwork by the President’s son, Robert Hunter Biden. You did not respond to these requests, but you have since hosted another Hunter Biden art exhibit at your SoHo gallery. The Committee is reiterating its request for documents related to the Committee's investigation of the Biden family and is requesting you appear for a transcribed interview."
