The faithfully copied images offer a wide range of religious masterworks, with at least one picture by Durer, Michelangelo, Da Vinci, Titan, Masaccio, Fra Angelico, Bartolomeo, Raphael, Botticelli, Ghirlandaio, Perugino, Carpaccio, Giotto, Mantegna, Veronese and many others. Several multiple-panel works are presently complete, including Van Eyck's Ghent Altarpiece and Memling's Triptych of Jan Floreins and Passion Altarpiece.
