CORSENDONCK BELGIUM 2001



(20" X 22") 50.8 X 55.9cm

 

Though it is protected by Belgian`s heritage laws, this 16th century stable
in Corsendonck near Retie in the northeast of the country is still being
used for the storage of anything that a modern farm throws up. Nearby, the
Corsendonck monestary established in the 13th century, reclaimed much of
this area from it's original swamp and marshlands. The monks cultivated the
land. After the French revolution, it was claimed by the local aristocracy
who in turn rented out pockets to small farmers for corn, sheep and cattle.
