Oil painting on oak panel, The Nativity at Night by Jan Prevoost (Bergen c.1465 - Bruges 1529). The interior of a ruined brick building with the Virgin kneeling, surrounded by child angels, adoring the Child who lies on the ground before her; she wears a pale blue-grey robe and hood and dark blue mantle. In the background Saint Joseph, carrying a lantern, stands beside a woman who may be one of the two midwives in attendance at the birth of Christ; in the foreground the ox and ass lie on either side of the Child and at the right two shepherds peer through a window. Light radiates from the Child and illuminates the face of the Madonna and part of her robe. Probably the left wing of a triptych.
