The Prayer in the Garden (detail)

1578-81
Oil on canvas
Scuola Grande di San Rocco, Venice

In the lonely spot of the garden, Christ, in a red mantle, receives the announcement of his imminent death from the divine messenger. The latter breaks in from the right in a bright reddish halo and his brightness creates reflections on the leaves of the shrubs.
