- The artist who painted the Bill Clinton portrait found in Jeffrey Epstein’s mansion has finally broken her silence.
- The painting called ‘Parsing Bill’ depicts the former president in a blue dress and red high heels and posing seductively.
- She revealed that she had also painted George W. Bush as part of her degree show at the New York Academy of Art.
The artist behind the controversial Bill Clinton painting found in Jeffrey Epstein’s home has finally been found and it looks like she had no idea that the billionaire had it in his possession. Interestingly, the woman who painted the portrait revealed that she had worked on it when she was still a student.
Petrina Ryan-Kleid is the young artist who exhibited the original painting called ‘Parsing Bill’ for her degree show when she graduated from the New York Academy of Art. The painting depicts Bill Clinton in what appears to be Monica Lewinsky’s controversial blue dress and red high heels. After it was sold, Ryan-Kleid claims that she had no idea it would end up in Jeffrey Epstein’s Manhattan mansion.
The original painting by Petrina Ryan-Kleid is called ‘Parsing Bill’.
Ryan-Kleid revealed that the painting was sold seven years ago when she was still a student.
“In 2012, as a grad student at the New York Academy of Art, I painted pictures of Presidents Clinton and Bush as part of my Master’s thesis. When the school put on a fundraiser at the Tribeca Ball that year, they sold my painting to one of the attendees,” Ryan-Kleid said.
“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 anonymous source who found the painting in Epstein’s mansion spotted the painting through an open door as she walked through the house with her business partner. She added that there was a young girl of about 14 years old who was waiting for Epstein during their meeting.
Petrina Ryan-Kleid is unsure whether the painting found in Epstein’s home is the original canvas or a print.
Epstein was arrested in July on federal charges for sex trafficking of minors in Florida and New York. He committed suicide on August 10, 2019, in his jail cell.
