Jeffrey Epstein Had Bizarre Painting Of Bill Clinton In Blue Dress Inside His Manhattan Mansion: Report

The existence of the picture was confirmed by an anonymous source who said she saw it when she visited the house for a business meeting with the multimillionaire financier in 2012.

As the death of multi-millionaire Jeffrey Epstein continues to raise questions about his past, a recent discovery has been quite the shocker, though not nearly as profane as his alleged crimes of trafficking children. A painting depicting former President Bill Clinton wearing a blue dress with a plunging neckline, red heels and posing with seductive impressions on a chair has been found in Epstein's $56 million Manhattan mansion. 

According to Daily Mail,  the painting was reportedly located in a room off the stairway of his $56 million Upper East Side townhouse, with the revelation of its existence coming from an anonymous source who said she saw it when she visited the residence in October 2012 to present a business proposal. She said she was shocked when she caught a glimpse of it and vouched for its veracity.



 

 



 

"It was absolutely Bill Clinton," she said. "It was shocking - it was definitely a painting of him. It was a very provocative, sexual picture. He was wearing heels, a blue dress and his hand were in a weird position." "It was through a door that had been left temporarily open by his housekeeper or butler," the source told Daily Mail.  She said she had an hour-long discussion with Epstein and that he came off as "creepy", a notion that was further solidified when she said she came out of the meeting and saw a young girl of Hispanic origin aged approximately 14-years-old waiting to see him next.



 

The artist behind Jeffrey Epstein’s now-viral portrait of Bill Clinton in a blue dress says she sold the painting at a Tribecca Ball fundraiser several years ago — and had “no idea” that he was the one who had purchased it. The original painting, which is titled Parsing Bill, is by Manhattan-based artist Petrina Ryan-Kleid. Ryan-Kleid had exhibited it for her degree show when she graduated with an MFA from the New York Academy of Art in 2012.

“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,” explained Petrina Ryan-Kleid in a statement to The Post on Thursday.  Clinton's pose in the painting was supposedly inspired by the famous image of Uncle Sam used in James Montgomery Flagg's World War I recruiting poster which read, "I want you for U.S. Army." However, it is still unclear whether the one in Epstein's mansion was the original or just a print.



 

Former White House employee Monica Lewinsky had worn a similar blue dress during the scandal, though the same could be said of Clinton's wife Hillary, who was snapped in a startlingly similar outfit at the 2009 Kennedy Center Honors. And while it may seem like an odd thing to have hanging at your house, that painting was not an original piece of work that was commissioned by Epstein. Epstein was good friends with the former President - the 72-year-old is thought to have flown on the deceased financier's infamous private plane, 'The Lolita Express', several times - and the picture was likely bought to poke fun at the latter's highly-publicized affair with Lewinsky.

Now does this tell us something more about the Clinton's family's consistent denials about their relationship with Epstein? Clearly, they seemed to be a lot closer before than after his trial and arrest. After the initial allegations against Epstein came out, both Hilary and Bill Clinton distanced themselves from the convicted multi-millionaire and denied knowledge of the crimes he had been accused of. Bill Clinton himself says that he had only flown with Epstein four times, but the flight records show at least 26 journeys together. Either way, if Bill (and/or Hilary) were indeed a part of Epstein's alleged child-trafficking operations, then even a single flight for such a purpose is enough to land an arrest and trial for them too. 



 

 

Clinton's denial of being on Epstein's 'pedophile island' Little St. James was also called into question when one of the 66-year-old's alleged sex slaves, Virginia Roberts, claimed she saw the former President on the island for a dinner held in his honor shortly after he left the Oval Office. It doesn't' seem to help the Clintons' case that this bizarre painting had just been uncovered too. What this is going to result in is more investigations and probes which are sure to get to the bottom of this.
