Chinese artist retracts forgery claims about disputed Hairdressing paintings

After disputing two works last September, the artist Geng Jianyi has stated in a letter that it is possible he repainted two works in his Hairdressing series. Hairdressing: Hairwashing was set to be auctioned by Poly last October, but was withdrawn due to complaints by Geng, supported by other artists including Zhang Peili, that it was not an authentic work.
