Hunter Biden’s artwork, the prices for which range between $75,000 and $500,000, are highly overpriced and indicate that buyers will be paying for the Biden last name, rather than the art itself, experts say.
Their assessments will likely add to what is a growing ethics problem for President Biden.
Three art critics and one art professor – Geoffrey Young, Ben Davis, Tabish Khan and John Ploff, respectively – told POLITICO that the prices for Hunter’s artwork are nowhere close to where they should be for a budding artist.
Young said the president’s son’s paintings were “better” than he thought they would be, but the price point is still much higher than it should be.
“Traditionally, young artists are a bargain, and if they begin to sustain a career, gallerists raise the prices incrementally, as they should,” Young told POLITICO.
