Georgia O'Keeffe, White Rose With Larkspur No. 2, 1927; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
There seem to be multiple modern reproductions of this painting, some more faithful to the original than others. The one shown below is an extreme reinterpretation. I'm surprised more people aren't suspicious — the title refers to a white rose, and the rose in this reproduction is yellow, or at best very dingy. The whole picture, in fact, is freely colored with little attention to the authentic work. There are also several versions of a different, presumably earlier composition titled White Rose With Larkspur No. 1, but to date I haven't been able to locate an original source for this alleged precursor. (Additional info welcome.)
