there has to be a more comprehensive answer than blaming a monitor as the monitor did not change the photo.

Why does it have to be comprehensive? It is pretty simple, the monitor didn’t change the image in any way shape or form, it changed your perception of how the image should look.

I wouldn’t expect a fresco to look like an oil painting, they are two different media. And I wouldn’t expect a backlit media display to look like a poster of the same image – otherwise there would be no point in me stocking both translucent back light media and paper; or for that matter glossy paper, lustre paper, smooth fine art paper, and textured fine art paper – one would actually hope they looked different, or there would be no point.
