Hunter Biden’s Art Dealer Declares Him ‘One Of The Most Consequential Artists In This Century’ After House Demands His Records

 The art gallerist who deals in Hunter Biden‘s artwork issued a fawning statement on Thursday about the first son’s paintings, just a day after Republicans requested his records.

George Berges, the owner of the George Berges art gallery in New York City, praised the younger Biden and his artwork effusively in a statement to the New York Post. Berges’ statement came just a day after the House Oversight Committee sent a letter to him demanding he hand over any and all communications he may have had with the White House, as well as information on his dealings with Hunter Biden.

“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,” Berges said in his statement to the New York Post. “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,” Berges continued. “In a world that beats us down, we need art in our lives that reminds of the unrelenting divinity within each of us.”

“Almost 10 years ago I opened a gallery that has a global perspective on the human experience and that seeks to find artists who I feel will be consequential not just in the art world but in the broader culture,” the art dealer went on. “Artists that are relevant to the times, not to esoteric circles where art and exhibitions come and go unnoticed by society, by the people, by culture, but relevant innovative artists and exhibitions that challenge us, and engage us.”

Berges told the outlet that further inquiries should be referred to his lawyers. He added that his primary focus is “the integrity of our artists and the privacy of our art collectors.”

Berges’ fawning statement comes just a day after House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) sent a letter to Berges demanding information on Hunter Biden’s art dealings as part of their investigation into the Biden family’s business dealings. In the letter, Comer slammed Berges for not cooperating with the Committee when Republicans were in the minority, then requested the same information again.

In the letter, Comer demanded all relevant documents and communications between the dealer, his gallery, and the Biden White House or Hunter Biden; the agreements or contracts between Berges or the gallery and Hunter Biden; documents related to the prices for his artwork; any ethics guidelines set down in conjunction with the White House; and documents sufficient to show who attended the opening of Biden’s art shows and bought his pieces.
