Gallery Clerveaux 2012

May 20 2014 Attractive Clervaux is a sloping tongue of land wrapped into a deep wooded curl of the Clerve River. Dominating this little central plateau are a 1913 neo-Romanesque church and a very distinctive whitewashed castle. The latter is a fully rebuilt replica of the 12th-century original that was razed in WWII. Although it contains two other minor museums, the castle's primary attraction is Edward Steichen's world-famous photography exhibition, Family of Man. Gifted to Clervaux in 1964, the collection comprises 273 black-and-white, mid-20th-century photos from 68 countries interspersed with wise sayings and quotations.
