The reproduction below, possibly a digital variation, is a good example of altered art images that have been tinted a particular color, without any obvious purpose. If an otherwise natural scene looks as though you're seeing it through colored glasses, it's probably an altered copy. In addition to misrepresenting the artist's original colors, the process also removes a lot of the detail, tends to flatten the image, and blurs the the contrast between elements.
