This image is a painting by Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, a renowned 19th-century French artist. The painting depicts a significant scene from Christian tradition, specifically the episode in the Garden of Gethsemane. In this scene, Jesus Christ, dressed in red, is shown in a moment of deep contemplation and prayer. An angel is offering him a chalice, symbolizing divine support and the acceptance of his forthcoming sacrifice.

Corot's use of dark, muted colors and dramatic lighting enhances the solemn and contemplative atmosphere of the scene. The signature "COROT" in the bottom right corner confirms the painting's attribution to Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot. This work captures the intense emotional and spiritual struggle of Jesus Christ before his arrest and crucifixion.
