Agony in the Garden

Carl Bloch did multiple versions of this, his most famous painting. I think I like this one the best.

Good one! Thanks, Dymphna!
By the way, Luke mentions that Jesus sweat blood. Jim Bishop, in his book The Day Christ Died elaborates on that. I have never seen it in a painting, though. Yet.

Hi Bob, I've never seen a painting showing the bloody sweat. My guess is that because hematidrosis is so rare most artists had no idea how to show it.
