While it is important to have an accurate copy of original art as a 
reference point, I have no problem when a user (in the spirit of Andy 
Warhol) plays with the colours of a work of art.  Sometimes a work of 
art can be studied better by electronically enhancing certain parts of 
the spectrum. 

Also, not all scans are the same.  Poor scanning equipment and software 
can itself generate distortions of coulour.
