The Agony in the Garden, by Frans Schwartz 1898
The Gospel of Luke describes the Savior’s dark hours in Gethsemane: “And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him” (Luke 22:43). Here the angel stands above the kneeling Christ, enveloping Him in a warm embrace. With wings extended, the angel seems to banish the darkness, if only for a moment. Schwartz captures the tenderness of the scene with loose and painterly brushstrokes quite different from the academic style of Bloch and Hofmann.
