One of the most celebrated portraitists in Northern art, van Dyck is less well known for his plein-air studies, which are some of the earliest known topographical views of architecture in Britain. In this view of Rye, a town on the Sussex coast, several important historic buildings can be identified, including the Romanesque church of St. Mary at the town's highest point and Ypres Tower, the remains of Rye castle, at the far left.
