Before us is an early picture of the artist. In the center we see Christ who is kneeling. If we look below, we can see the students. There are three of them. This is Peter, John, James. They unexpectedly fell asleep for themselves. Already getting light. The long night will end very soon. The day that has begun will bring the torment that is destined for Jesus.
The painter depicts an angel against the background of low clouds. He holds the cup. She is a symbol of suffering. This vessel must atone for all the sins of men. Christ must drink it all.
If you look closely, you can see in the distance a whole detachment of Roman soldiers who come here in order to arrest Christ. Ahead of the detachment is none other than Judas himself.
The artist depicts all the details of the landscape that are mentioned in the Bible. Moreover, it is nature that gives the whole scene a special sound. The sun rises, and the sky turns pink flare. The dawn is truly bloody. The whole scene is flooded with bizarre light casting gold. This indicates that the night has passed. Very soon, a new time will come, which will give everyone salvation.
The painter, using a picture of nature, enhances the realism of the canvas. If you follow the look along the paths, you can see the city, which is spread on a hill. The painter emphasizes the maximum versatility and significance of everything that happens.
All landscape details are meticulously thought out. The scene is illuminated in a certain way. Thanks to this, a certain mood is created. Dawn floods its light all around. In the background, the tones are cold, and in the foreground they turn into warm.
Bellini's image is incredibly plastic. Hills and stone formations are incredibly voluminous. The artist manages to create a soft landscape, the forms of which seem to float away. Before us is the creation of a true master.
