Yep, it’s true. Epstein had a painting of Bill Clinton wearing the infamous blue dress made famous by Monica Lewinsky hanging in his mansion on his island.
The original artist was just as shocked as we were to discover his work was on display at Epstein’s island:
“In 2012, as a grad student at the New York Academy of Art, I painted pictures of Presidents Bill Clinton and [George W.] Bush as part of my Master’s thesis,” artist Petrina Ryan-Kleid told Fox News in a statement Thursday night. “When the school put on a fundraiser at the Tribeca Ball that year, they sold my painting to one of the attendees. I had no idea who the buyer was at the time. As with most of my paintings, I had completely lost track of this piece when it was sold seven years ago. So it was a complete surprise to me to learn yesterday that it wound up in Epstein’s home.”
The painting, “Parsing Bill,” that hung in Epstein’s townhouse in Manhattan is only the most recent eyebrow-raising detail to emerge regarding the Clinton-Epstein connection. Questions about the extent of their friendship and what the ex-president and the convicted pedophile did during their time together have long dogged both men. Though Clinton has admitted to flying on Epstein’s private plane on four trips related to work for the Clinton Foundation, flight logs indicate two other trips and a total of 27 flights on which Clinton was a passenger.-Fox News
