Reconstruction Jordaens, commissioned by Amsterdam University (ErfgoedLab), 2011

The large paintings in the galleries of the Royal Palace in Amsterdam have been subjected to various conservation treatments in the past. This has lead to profound changes in colour and contrast in their appearance. Recently the paintings have again been treated and examined by SRAL. In 2011 the result was shown to the public in the exhibition Opstand als opdracht Flinck, Ovens, Lievens, Jordaens, De Groot, Bol en Rembrandt in Paleis. The ErfgoedLab of Amsterdam University curated an exhibition on the technical aspects of the restoration project. For this exhibition Charlotte made two reconstructions that gave an impression of the paintings’ original appearance and colour balance.
