Vincent Van Gogh, Imperial Fritillaries in a Copper Vase, 1887; © RMN-Grand Palais (Musée d'Orsay) / Hervé Lewandowski.
Despite the highly revised coloring in the reproduction below, this modern copy has been widely accepted as the standard for Van Gogh's beautiful Fritillaries painting. Furthermore,, captions on most online posts don't notify viewers that this is a newly created, loose interpretation. It's a shame, since the accurate photo above — which does a good job of presenting the glories of the authentic work — is easily available at the Musée d'Orsay's website.
