Limitations of postcards

What are the limitations of using postcards, Internet imaged etc for analysing art works?

There is no substitute for viewing the art in person because no matter how good the reproduction is or how calibrated your computer monitor is you can’t really see the colours the artist had used. Any details in the original maybe visible when seen in person but in a postcard they will disappear.
