Photograph of the painting ''Agony in the Garden', an event in the life of Christ. Christ is shown in the background, praying. Above Christ, in the upper right corner is an angel holding a cup. Three disciples are asleep in the foreground. Judas and Roman soldiers approach from the background, on the far right.

At the time of the photograph, the painting was attributed to Raphael (1483-1520) and was in the collection of William Fuller Maitland (1813-76). The work is now attributed to Lo Spagna (d. c. 1529) and is in the collection of the National Gallery, London.
