Studio of El Greco: 'The Agony in the Garden of Gethsemane'
Christ kneels in the centre; at the upper left an angel appears to him with a cup, a reference to his forthcoming Passion. In the background on the left are the sleeping apostles - Peter, James the Greater and John; on the right Judas approaches with soldiers.

The painting is a synthesis of varying accounts of the Agony in the Gospels and is probably a workshop replica of a painting in the Museum of Toledo (Ohio). There are also several authentic vertical versions of this composition.
