Agony in the Garden – Spagna

     Lo Spagna painted this depiction of Jesus Christ praying in the Garden of Gethsemane before His arrest. The Savior kneels with folded hands upon a grassy mound with long stalks of flowers on it. Christ's three favored apostles sit, sleeping, on the grass beneath the mound. Judas, accompanied by soldiers holding long spears, approaches. City buildings in a valley, surrounded by trees and mountains, make up the background. There is an angel holding a chalice in the dusk-blue sky.
