The Agony in the Garden

1616 - 1620. Oil on unlined canvas. Room 005

In the Garden of Gethsemane an angel comforts Christ before his crucifixion, while the three Apostles slumber nearby. Procaccini was the most renowned member of a Bolognese family of artists which had settled in Milan. His work reflects a heightened, dramatic religious sensibility with large figures located close the picture plane, as in this example in which Christ’s troubled face contrasts with the angel’s serenity.
