3Old painting gallery of the cloister. The window is used in this reconstruction.
4After World War II, the church was badly battered. The restoration brought the church back in the state shown here.
5Textures of the south wall of the church on the inside and outside. On the outer wall are many traces of former construction, which are captured in the model.
6Some model textures were done in Photshop. The altar stood on an old engraving of a church interior in 1600. I always keep windows and doors in an archive for reuse in other projects.

8Painting of the Catharina Hospital. When Agnes had to leave the monastery, the buildings were assigned to the Catharina Hospital, the only visible change was the gateway; all other buildings were more or less still in the condition of the old monastery.
92D image of the courtyard garden: this was the outdoor area where the sisters were staying. This and subsequent images I processed with Adobe Photoshop.
10The front of the monastery on the Beekstraat, "the brook" as it was called.

12The monastery: the building on the left was the "plague house." Further back were sick care and storage sheds. On the right was probably the board and waiting rooms; the monastery received regular visitors from other religious bodies.
