“All of the paintings on display at the venue are authentic, and all have been carefully confirmed and appraised by our curatorial team when the artworks were borrowed from their original owners,”organizer TST Art of Discovery Co. (京銓藝術) said in a statement posted on the exhibition’s Facebook page.
