do landowner. Unusually, the
tomb has two shelves – on
the top are the fi nely carved
effi gies of Ferry and his fi rst
wife, while below, on the lower
shelf, is his second. Here also,
above the altar, is an enamelled
terracotta medallion of the
Virgin and Child imported
from Florence some time in
the fi fteenth century. No one
knows quite how it ended up
here, but there’s no doubt that
it infl uenced Flemish artists of
the period – in the same way
as Michelangelo’s statue in the
Onze Lieve Vrouwekerk (see
p.70). The walls of St Jakobskerk

are covered with around eighty
paintings bequeathed by the
city’s merchants. They’re not an
especially distinguished bunch,
but look out for the fi nely
executed Legend of St Lucy, a
panel triptych by the Master of
the St Lucy Legend that tracks
through the sufferings of this
fourth-century saint in some
detail; it’s located in St Anthony’s
Chapel – the fi rst chapel on
the left-hand side of the nave.
In the next chapel along, look
out for the meditative Madonna
and the Seven Sorrows, a triptych
by Pieter Pourbus (1523–1584),
the leading local artist of his

day. St Jakobskerk also has a
fi rst-rate assortment of brass
funeral plaques, though putative
brassrubbers will need to bring
their own gear.

Kraanplein
East of St Jakobskerk lies
Kraanplein – Crane Square
– whose name recalls one of the
medieval city’s main attractions,
the enormous wooden crane
that once unloaded heavy
goods from the adjoining river.
Before it was covered over, the
River Reie ran south from Jan
van Eyckplein to the Markt,
and the Kraanplein dock was

one of the busiest parts of this
central waterway. Mounted on
a revolving post in the manner
of a windmill, the crane’s pulleys
were worked by means of two
large treadmills operated by
children – a grim existence by
any measure. Installed in 1290
– and only dismantled in 1767
– the crane impressed visitors
greatly and was as sure a sign
of Bruges’ economic success as
the Belfort. The crane crops up
in the background of several
medieval paintings, notably
behind St John in Memling’s
Mystical Marriage of St Catherine
(see p.74).
