According to a new report from Breitbart “Buyers of Hunter Biden’s artwork, which will be featured in an exhibition in New York later this year, will remain anonymous, furthering concerns of the potential for Biden family corruption, as the problem of money laundering in the art world remains an issue of concern.”
“Georges Bergès, a Soho art dealer who reportedly has some ties to China, is working with the 51-year-old Biden and is expected to hold a private viewing for Hunter in Los Angeles, followed by an exhibition in New York this fall. Biden’s art is expected to sell for $75,000 to half a million dollars, according to Artnet, and the sales will remain confidential,” the report adds.
The Townsend Group, an agency representing Bergès, told Fox Business “As with every artist, sales are always confidential to protect the privacy of the collector.”
Per the report, Alex Acevedo, owner of the Alexander Gallery in Midtown Manhattan, told the New York Post he believes Hunter’s venture will prove to be profitable — and not just because of the pieces themselves.
“I’ve been in the art business since 1956,’’ Acevedo told the outlet.
“I’m not impressed with modern art at all. But I was floored by that guy,” he said, describing the palette as “wonderful” and adding that he would “buy a couple of them.”
“And anybody who buys it would be guaranteed instant profit,” Acevedo explained, suggesting the Biden name will play a hefty role in the prices of Hunter’s pieces. “He’s the president’s son. Everybody would want a piece of that. The provenance is impeccable.’’
