Hunter Biden’s Art Dealer Has 2 Employees, But Got $580K in COVID Aid

Isabel Vincent reports today in the New York Post that the art gallery owner/dealer for rookie painter Hunter Biden, George Berges, received $500,000 from the Small Business Administration over the last two years for a COVID “disaster assistance loan.”

Berges’s initial loan award was for $150,000 last year, but was revised upward in July by an additional $350,000 as the president’s son was launching his brand-new art “career:”

In addition to the COVID disaster assistance loans, the SoHo gallery received nearly $80,000 in two payments in April 2020 and February 2021 under the SBA’s Paycheck Protection Program, funds meant to help businesses keep up with paychecks to employees during the pandemic.

All tolled, $580,000 in taxpayer-funded COVID relief aid was doled out to a gallery with only two employees, according to SBA records.

Berges declined to specifically respond to repeated queries from The Post on whether the Bidens interceded in his loans; if any of the government cash went directly to Hunter Biden as a salary or stipend; or if any of it was used to market his artwork…

“We’ve reached a new low in American politics where the President’s son gets his midlife crisis art career subsidized by the American people as part of our pandemic response to COVID,” said Tom Anderson, director of the government integrity project at the National Legal and Policy Center.

The Post also reported last week that an initial sale of five works by Hunter Biden drew $75,000 each in Los Angeles on Oct. 1, at a show that will continue until November.
