This documentary series attempts to recreate lost artworks.

The first artwork up is Graham Sutherland’s portrait of Winston Churchill from 1954, a painting that Churchill himself hated so much that he had it burned. Using early sketches and photos of the original picture, the group Factum Arte attempt to recreate Sutherland’s original work.
