I am finding a noticeable difference between the Library and Develop modules of the colours (reds and blues in particular) of some images recently imported into Lightroom (latest 11.2 version). My import preset only applies the chromatic aberration and lens profile corrections, but otherwise no edits have been carried out. Attached files show screenshots of the same image in the Library module, the Develop module before and after, and the original file viewed in Nikon's NX Studio software. The exported image is closer to the 'after' version. None of the Adobe or camera profiles appear to quite match the 'before' version. Can anyone suggest why I am seeing this difference and why the library module does not show the 'after' colours?

I see your Library has a "Peter" Quick Develop on. I am not sure why moving to Develop - does not show the changes. Interesting. If you turn off "Peter" Develop - do they look the same then?
 
Try disabling the GPU. Preferences > Performance > uncheck Use graphics processor.
If that fixes the issue, updating the graphics driver might make it possible to work with the GPU enabled.
If disabling the GPU doesn't help, you probably have a defective or incompatible monitor profile.
Test this by setting your monitor to the sRGB display profile-

Lightroom-Classic uses different workspaces for Library and Develop, and a suitable monitor profile is needed to display the colors consistently.

Thank you for your suggestion; I never use 'Quick Develop' but have reset the develop to Defaults and it makes no difference. Library and Develop still show the colours differently.

Thank you for your advice; switching off the GPU does appear to make the image colours consistent between the two modules. I will follow up your suggestions about the monitor.
