Oil on wood, 35 x 118 cm
The predella of the main altarpiece of the church of San Giovanni di Monte in Bologna consisted of three pieces, the Prayer in the Garden, and the Road to Calvary at the sides and a Pietà in the middle.
The two side paintings were on their original place until 1749 when they were sold to the Saxonian Elector.
