Description

This painting depicts Christ in white and celestial robes, to whom an angel, appearing in flight at the top left in a burst of light in the nighttime sky, presents the chalice of the Passion. In the lower part, in the foreground, are the slumbering figures of the three apostles.

Orsi's preference for the "by night" outcomes in the Correggio style leads us to identify the immediate precursor of this canvas in the Agony in the Garden by Allegri, currently housed at Apsley House in London but originally located in Reggio with the Signoretti family.
