Édouard Manet, Le Bon Bock, 1873; The Philadelphia Museum of Art.
Such gorgeous, realistic detail in the original Manet painting, very engaging and impressive. Not so with the first version below, which is literally a pale imitation — possibly an overexposed photo. The second image below adds an unnatural, yellow tinge, removing the wonderful flesh tones of the original and changing the coloration of the composition as a whole. In addition, excess contrast has erased a lot of the small, superb touches that bring Le Bon Bock to life in the authentic work.
