Jan de Beer was a Flemish painter, one of the Antwerp Mannerist school many of whose paintings were formerly ascribed to him.
The central panel depicts the Adoration of the Shepherds. On the left wing is St Felicity with her sons and on the right is St Ursula with her followers. The composition and style are characteristic of Antwerp Mannerism of the early 16th century.
