(Washington Examiner) The artist who painted the portrait of former President Bill Clinton wearing a blue dress told the Washington Examiner that it was a “complete surprise” to learn that Jeffrey Epstein, the alleged child sex trafficker, had her work hanging in his Manhattan home.
Petrina Ryan-Kleid, an Australian artist living in New York City, said, “When the [New York Academy of Art] 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.”
The existence of the oil-on-canvas painting, dubbed “Parsing Bill”, depicts the former president sitting seductively in an Oval Office chair, wearing red heels and a blue dress reminiscent of the one he soiled during his affair with Monica Lewinsky.
