Art dealer George Bergès, who held exclusive rights to sell Hunter Biden’s art, did not renew his contract due to security concerns, death threats, and political assumptions.

This contradicts Republican claims about Hunter Biden’s art success, as only a few people purchased his work, with most sales attributed to one individual.

Republicans have raised ethical concerns about potential influence-buying through art purchases, but Bergès indicated that the market for Biden’s art was limited, with prices generally lower than previously reported.

“I never expected the whole security issue or the death threats and people assuming political affiliation, which was completely wrong,” Bergès said.

“It was a little bit more than I could chew,” he said. “I kind of wanted my life back. So I haven’t agreed to renew that contract now.”

“The vast majority of Hunter Biden’s art has been purchased by Democrat donors, one of whom was appointed by President Biden to a prestigious commission after she purchased Hunter Biden’s art for tens of thousands of dollars shortly after Joe Biden’s inauguration,” House Oversight Committee chair James Comer said.

“Those are awfully high prices,” former chief ethics lawyer for George W. Bush, Richard Painter said.

“If I look at the whole picture of this artist objectively, I would say, ‘OK, this is great that we got someone to do a major acquisition, but let’s look at the general response and what the value is,’” Bergès said. “I would have said, ‘You know, it’s not that impressive.’”

“Rocky is not supposed to win, but he wins. And that’s to me, America,” Bergès said. “And Hunter is not supposed to win. He should be dead. And he faced a crossroad in his life, which we all do when we’re all struggling with things in our lives. And he could have chosen the easy path, which is to keep going and die, or do the hard thing, which is to change.”

Despite this, Bergès expressed admiration for Biden’s personal journey and compared him to Rocky Balboa, emphasizing the challenges Biden overcame.

“So in that sense it was working against him but the same thing with Stallone,” Bergès said. “Can people look at his work objectively without that name overshadowing their ability to actually look to see if the art is good or bad? It can go both ways. And I rolled the dice on it and, yes, there was one big sale but I have to look at the totality of it.”
