Truth : Epstein Did Not Own Painting Of George Bush Playing With Paper Airplanes!

Let’s take a look at the viral painting, and find out why Jeffrey Epstein did not actually own it!

Fact #1 : That’s George Bush Jr.

Let me just start by pointing out that there are two US Presidents called George Bush, and the one in the viral painting is George Bush Jr. or George W. Bush.

Born George Walker Bush on July 6 , 1946, George W. Bush was the 43rd President of the United States. He was the president who initiated the war on terror after the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States.

The other George Bush was his father – George H. W. Bush (George Herbert Walker Bush or George Bush Sr.), who was the 41st President of the United States, and died on 30 November 2018.

Fact #2 : George Bush Painting Is Real

Some have suggested that the viral painting of George Bush Jr. was not real, but generated using AI text-to-image generation.

However, the truth is – that is a real painting called “War Games” that was painted by Australian artist, Petrina Ryan-Kleid.

Fact #3 : George Bush Painting Was From 2012

Some people appear to suggest that this painting was possibly painted before the September 11 attacks in 2001. However, War Games was painted about 11 years after that September 11 attacks.

Petrina Ryan-Kleid painted War Games in 2012, as part of her Master’s thesis at the New York Academy of Art. She exhibited that painting at her degree show when she graduated with an MFA the same year from the New York Academy of Art.

Fact #4 : Epstein Bought A Different Painting

Petrina Ryan-Kleid painted two pictures for her Master’s thesis – the aforementioned War Games picture of President George Bush Jr. and a picture of President Bill Clinton, called Parsing Bill.

Unbeknownst to her, the New York Academy of Art sold Parsing Bill (not War Games) to Jeffrey Epstein the same year she graduated.

It was Parsing Bill that was seen in Jeffrey Epstein’s Upper East Side townhouse in Manhattan, New York City. Even Petrina Ryan-Kleid was surprised to learn that he bought her painting.

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. 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.

To be clear – Jeffrey Epstein bought her painting of President Bill Clinton lounging on a chair in a blue dress and red hills, and pointing a finger.

He did not purchase the picture of President George Jr. playing with paper airplanes with two piles of Jenga blocks.

Fact #4 : Both Paintings Had No Nefarious Meaning

Some people appear to suggest that the War Games painting was implying that George Bush Jr. was the “real architect” behind the September 11 attacks, instead of Al Qaeda.

Others have suggested that the Parsing Bill painting was suggesting that Bill Clinton was a crossdresser, or Jeffrey Epstein had it painted to suggest he “had the dirt” on Clinton.

However, Petrina Ryan-Kleid stated in an August 2019 interview, that both paintings were about “how opposition parties caricature presidents“. She stated that “neither painting should be taken literally“.

Petrina Ryan-Kleid pointed out that at the time, she had just arrived in the United State from Australia, and was completely naive about politics. She still remained ambivalent about American politics.

I live a quiet life, and I really just had a naive, newly arrived foreigner’s idea for a thesis.

It was just a silly school artwork that was supposed to show, pictorially, the messages we are bombarded with in regards to these presidents.

Since I’m Australian, I wasn’t then, nor am I now, partisan about American politics. At the time, most of my ideas were fresh from the Daily Show or from Australian cable TV.

As the artist has clarified – both paintings have no nefarious, hidden meaning.
