17th-century Malines alabaster panel showing St Jerome as a penitent in the Syrian desert. He is seen kneeling before a stone altar, on which stand a crucifix and a human skull as a sign of penitence. He is beating his breast with a stone to distract himself from temptation. His tame lion rests at his side and his cardinal's hat hangs from a nearby tree. These are his usual attributes in art.

The panel is monogrammed for Gielis Neins, who was working in Malines (Mechelen) from 1609. The panel retains much original gilding and painted brown decoration.

The panel has its original oak backing but is surrounded by modern red velvet and a gilded frame.

The frame is 8" high x 7.25" wide.
