LetX be a smooth irreducible projective variety over an algebraically closed fieldK andE a vector bundle onX. We prove that, if dimX ≥ 1, there exist a smooth irreducible projective varietyZ overK, a surjective separable morphismf:Z →X which is finite outside an algebraic subset of codimension ≥ 3 inX and a line bundleL onX such that the direct image ofL byf is isomorphic toE. WhenX is a curve, we show thatZ, f, L can be so chosen thatf is finite and the canonical mapH1(Z, O) →H1(X, EndE) is surjective.
