Reconstruction of Van Gogh's brush strokes for IP4AI, commissioned by NOVA science show, 2007

Charlotte made a reconstruction of the Reaper (1889) by Vincent van Gogh for a PBS documentary on distinguishing forgery paintings from originals. A group of mathematicians and computer scientists from Princeton University, Penn State University and Maastricht University, were challenged to identify Charlotte's copy amongst a series of true Van Gogh paintings. Charlotte's reconstruction follows the original in technique and brushstrokes. The documentary on this challenge can be watched on the NOVA scienceNOW website. Charlotte continues working with one of the scientists, Professor Ingrid Daubechies.
