Vigor Boucquet, a baroque painter from the Westhoek region, left an impressive oeuvre that did not only bring him artistic recognition, but also considerable wealth. The Judgment of Cambyses is one of the most captivating judgment scenes.

Church of Our Lady

The Church of Our Lady is the coastal town of Nieuwpoort’s main church. The building, a three-aisle gothic hall church with a well-nigh separate tower on its north side, houses a number of valuable stained glass windows, depicting not only biblical themes, but also local historic events. The altarpiece of Our Lady, for example, shows a fishing boat to symbolise the city.
