This page shows a selection of Charlotte's reconstruction projects. They are copies of original works of art and typically follow the original as closely as possible with regard to paint layers, materials and painting technique. These reconstructions are based on the original paintings’ technical documentation and research of conservation scientists and people who have restored the original object.

Reconstructions may serve different needs. They can be a tool for educational purposes, complement art historical research, form a reference in scientific research projects, show the art object´s original appearance before colors started to change, or replace a lost original.
