Man Ray, Symphony Orchestra, 1916; Albright-Knox Gallery, New York.
The clear and accurate photo above, from the museum where this Man Ray painting is located, is easily accessible, yet the color-altered version below is seen frequently as a substitute. For example, there's a lot of added red that's turned the white areas pink and many brown areas reddish-orange. And there are other color changes throughout. These manipulations have skewed the work's overall appearance, for the most part by introducing hues that weren't intended by the artist himself. It's likely that this is a low-resolution photo of a modern reproduction, with some extra digital editing.
