A 17th century Flemish school - Christ at the Mount of Olives

This large oil copper brings us into one of the most difficult moments of Jesus' life, the night of his arrest. Christ comes to the Mount of Olives with his disciples to pray. As he devotes himself to prayer, his three disciples, Peter, John, and James the Minor, fall asleep. Angels,comforting the praying Christ, offer him a chalice to drink (in acceptance of his destiny) and holding the instruments of the Passion.
In the background a cohort of Roman soldiers who came to arrest Jesus, guided by Judas holding his purse. In the same composition, two episodes of the life of Jesus are gathered together by the principle of narration: prayer on the Mount of Olives and the arrest of Jesus.
