Giorgio de Chirico, Prometeo (Prometheus), 1909-10; Paolo Volponi Collection.
The reproduction below appears to be a modern painting based on the original, possibly with additional digital alterations. It's doubtful that the deep, comprehensive changes seen in the updated work could have been achieved solely through digital tampering, The latest sighting of this reproduction also included an incorrect title and date, providing the oddly seasonal title "Prometheus Autumn," 1908. The photo above, presumably more accurate, comes from an article about a 2019 exhibition at the Fondazione Magnani Rocca in Parma, Italy, where three different Prometheus paintings were displayed together for the first time. In addition to De Chirico's work, a painting by his brother Alberto Savinio, and a Prometheus by Arnold Böcklin also appeared.
