One Problem With Studying Art On The Internet

Cover of "Hold Your Fire"Cover of Hold Your FireThis is the Google image search page for Rush's Hold Your Fire album cover.

So when you click on an image of, for example, the Mona Lisa, what are you seeing ? Which of the hundreds of images shown on the search screen is closest to being a true representation of the original artwork ?  The Hold Your Fire search throws up hundreds of images in a wide variety of shades and hues, but without having the reference point of the original cover, who can say which is nearest the true image.
