Ghislaine Maxwell would trawl high-end art galleries and auction houses looking to find so-called ‘Gallerinas’ to meet Jeffrey Epstein, a former friend has claimed.

Ms Maxwell regularly attended events at Christie’s and Sotheby’s on both sides of the Atlantic, the friend said.

‘She would go to every art gallery opening and was a familiar presence at auctions and parties at Christie’s and Sotheby’s,’ the friend said.

‘The art world is full of pretty young girls and many of them are young and broke.

‘You’d see her everywhere, often with beautiful blonde girls in tow.’

During a party at Christie’s in London, she was spotted talking to Clementine Hambro, one of Princess Diana’s bridesmaids, who this week admitted to twice flying on Epstein’s ‘Lolita Express’ private jet.

‘I was young, naive and lucky to escape,’ Hambro said.

Maria Farmer, one of serial paedophile Epstein’s victims, says she was ‘picked up’ by Epstein and Maxwell at a 1995 show to celebrate her graduation from the New York Academy of Art. 

Epstein is also believed to have met Shelley Lewis – dubbed his ‘secret girlfriend’ – when she was working in the Contemporary Art Department at Christie’s in New York in the late 1990s.

Maxwell is currently in custody awaiting trial in the US for allegedly enticing and trafficking minors and sex trafficking and commiting perjury.

She denies all the claims.
