Painting of Bill Clinton wearing blue dress and bright red heels reportedly hung in Jeffrey Epstein's NYC mansion

A satirical painting of former President Bill Clinton wearing a blue dress and bright red heels hung in convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein's New York City mansion, according to reports.

The portrait, which was painted by NYC-based Australian artist Petrina Ryan-Kleid, was "hanging up there prominently — as soon as you walked in — in a room to the right" in the accused sex trafficker's former 5th Avenue townhouse, a source who viewed the artwork told the New York Post.

The likeness depicts Clinton lounging suggestively on a chair in the Oval Office wearing a bright blue dress and red heels while pointing toward the viewer in an inviting manner.

"Everybody who saw it laughed and smirked," the source said.

Strangely enough, Ryan-Kleid says she had no idea the artwork, which she created seven years ago as part of her master's thesis at the New York Academy of Art, was hanging in Epstein's home, nor that it would be thrust into the spotlight following his alleged prison suicide.

The artist told the New York Post on Thursday that the original painting, dubbed "Parsing Bill," was sold to an attendant at a fundraiser her school put on at the Tribeca Ball seven years ago. 

"I had no idea who the buyer was at the time," Ryan-Kleid told the outlet. "As with most of my paintings, I had completely lost track of this piece when it was sold. So it was a complete surprise to me to learn yesterday that it wound up in Epstein's home."

Any fans of the odd painting are in luck — Ryan-Kleid is still selling prints of it for $40 apiece.
