Agony in the Garden – Garofalo

     The three apostles sleep in the foreground of this artwork depicting Christ's Agony in the Garden by Garofalo. The suffering Christ kneels in prayer in the garden of Gethsemane, while an angel hovers in the air, in a circle of light, holding a chalice and a cross.  A band of soldiers with torches and clubs, led by Judas Iscariot, approaches from behind the Savior.
