Art Professor Says Hunter Biden Paintings ‘Amateur’ and Not Worth Asking Price

“How much of that value is due to the art itself? That’s easy: None of it”

Are professors still allowed to say things like this? Who knew?

The College Fix reports:

Art professor calls Hunter Biden’s expensive paintings ‘amateur work,’ says they are not worth asking price

President Joe Biden’s son Hunter may sell some of his artwork (one painting is on the right) for nearly half a million dollars. But a Maryland art professor said that those paintings are worth about $497,000 less than the asking price.

“How much of that value is due to the art itself? That’s easy: None of it,” Jeffry Cudlin told the Washington Examiner.

The paintings “might fetch between $850-$3,000 for a buyer,” the Washington Examiner reported. Cudlin said the art would “hang over someone’s couch.”

“They’re fine decorative amateur work,” the Maryland Institute College of Art professor said. “Hey, everybody needs a hobby!”

Cudlin explained further:

If Hunter Biden were applying to school to get a BFA [bachelor of fine arts] in painting, I think a portfolio with these pieces in it would indicate some sense of the medium, some nascent talent, and encourage anyone reviewing it that with a little training and a little study, Biden might one day make some interesting paintings.

George Bergès, Biden’s art dealer, said that his work is inspired by people like Francis Bacon or Lucien Freud.

“I can tell you that Freud and Bacon are the favorite painters of every straight white fraternity guy who took a single art appreciation class in undergrad for giggles,” Cudlin said, in response.

Thanks Captain Obvious.

So, you’re saying that this is just a way of soliciting bribes for the big guy?

How incredibly insulting that the (pseudo) President of the United States could be bought so cheap.

Hunter Biden’s paintings are nothing but a variation on the books allegedly written by Obama, Hillary Clinton, and others. Huge advances and big buys that never end up sold. In short, campaign law skirting.

Think of Hunter’s paintings as very large “Playboy Club Key Cards.” Their price has nothing to do with what they cost to print, it’s about what you can access when you have one.
