An angel supporting Jesus at his most difficult moment. Gethsemane (1873) was painted by Carl Bloch (1834-1890), who captured the emotions in the painting in a beautiful way. The full title of the painting is An Angel Comforting Jesus before His Arrest in the Garden of Gethsemane. It is based on the story in Luke 22, where Jesus went out to the Mount of Olives, just outside Jerusalem, to pray. He went there in the night, together with his disciples, whom he asked to stay awake while he went out to pray on his own a little bit further. As Jesus was anticipating his crucifixion, it was the hardest moment for him, and he struggled in his prayer. And that's the moment that an angel came down from heaven to support Jesus, which is the moment depicted here. The angel lights up the night and is down on one knee. He lovingly puts his hand on Jesus' head while supporting his body with his other. Jesus seems to take some comfort in the angel supporting him and finally finds the strength to pray. #Art #Painting #Artwork #ArtHistory #HistoryofArt #OilPainting #OilonCopper #Copper #FrederiksBorg #DanishArtist #Danish #DanishArt rt #DanishPainter #Gethsemane #Jesus #Angel #Support #Difficult #HardTime #Struggle #Struggling #Luke22 #GospelofLuke #CarlBloch #Bloch #Emotional #Emotions #Prayer #Praying
