Otis Dozier, Cotton Ball, 1936; Dallas Museum of Art.
The yellow-tinged reproduction below not only changes the colors of the original, but in doing so erases the naturalistic qualities that are basic to the composition despite its abstract elements. The monochrome color scheme flattens depth and contrast, and severs the connection with earth, natural growth, and blue sky. The image is most likely a photo of a recently painted reproduction, but it's been circulating without a notification letting viewers know that it's an altered update. It's also badly cropped, with sections of the top and bottom missing.
