Charlotte van der Gaag, better known as Lotti van der Gaag (December 18, 1923, The Hague - February 20, 1999, Nieuwegein) was a Dutch sculptor and painter and strongly associated with members of the COBRA arts movement.

Aged 20, she had a relationship with the artist Bram Bogart, who introduced her to sculpture.

Around 1950, she visited the Dutch poet Simon Vinkenoog in Paris; here she was introduced to members of COBRA, amongst them Karel Appel and Corneille. During this period she concentrated almost exclusively on her sculpture.
