Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump raise ethics concerns over undisclosed art


White House senior adviser Jared Kushner has been called out for omitting the considerable art collection he shares with wife Ivanka Trump from financial disclosure forms submitted to the U.S. Office of Government Ethics, according to a recent artnet News report.

The collection, considered to be worth millions, reportedly includes works by Nate Lowman, Dan Colen, and Louis Eisner; in fact, observers have pointed out that images of some of the pieces have been posted to Trump's own Instagram account.

Federal workers are required to disclose various finances and holdings, including any artwork worth more than $1,000 that may be held for investment, according to the Office of Government Ethics (OGE).

An attorney advising Kushner indicated that the couple's art does not fall under the guidelines.

"Mr. Kushner and Ms. Trump display their art for decorative purposes and have made only a single sale," the attorney stated. To avoid any doubt, however, they will report their art collection."

Despite the explanation, critics have pointed out that the couple has engaged the services of an art consultant to advise them on pieces to buy.

The first daughter has also spoken about the role that art plays in her investment strategy in the past, as HuffPost pointed out, noting a 2015 article called "How to Start Collecting Art," published on her website.

"Think of art as an investment," she wrote, leaving little room to read between the lines.

He also failed to identify that he is currently a part-owner of a real-estate finance startup company and a series of loans.
