This is an early work by Lambert Lombard, probably dating from just before his celebrated altarpiece panels for the Saint-Denis retable done circa 1533.

The central panel of the triptych represents the Adoration of the Magi, the left inner wing the Adoration of the Shepherds, while the right inner wing the Massacre of the Innocents. On the outer wings (not shown) the Theological Virtues are depicted.
