Christ in the Garden of Gethsemane

Tempera on wood, 62 x 44 cm (with frame)
Lindenau-Museum, Altenburg

The panel is composed of two distinct scenes. However, radiographic investigation shows that the continuous landscape was later separated by the large horizontal golden band. The upper part represents the Prayer in the Garden, while the lower part gives one of the first representations of Penitent St Jerome.
