When you find a new painting in the National Gallery it’s a good idea to sketch it fast! I was very excited to see that this El Greco version has been lent by a private collection and is hung next to the gallery’s own version of “The Agony in the Garden”.
El Greco is a complicated painter, taking Tintoretto’s school of composition and running with it. Always an exciting artist to copy.
If you’re near the National Gallery this week run in and see this painting before it returns to its collection.
