Gustave Caillebotte, "Dahlias, Garden at Petit Gennevilliers," 1893; National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.
The altered image below, which as been seen online lately, and traces back to a Wiki site, is clearly a cropped and re-colored version of the original. It could be a digitally edited photo, or it might be a recently painted reproduction. Regardless, the listing doesn't mention that the image is just a portion of the real-world picture, and also mistakenly states that the painting is in a private collection. In fact, the work can be easily found at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., as shown above.
Be cautious when using any of the Wiki sites. Many of the listings are uploads by ordinary people who might or might not possess full information about the photos they're adding to the database. And make sure to click through to the source — sometimes the picture that Wiki shows and the picture that's at the source don't match up!
