A house built in a landscape of rolling hills, south of Brussels. This landscape being open and rural has been well preserved over the centuries as a consequence of the medieval castle (of Gaasbeek) that overlooks it. In a wider range Pieter Brueghel the Elder, one of our most famous painters, helped to its preservation by eternalising it (see ‘the harvest’, Metropolitan Museum, NY, fig). One can actually take a tour and visit the sites behind the paintings.
