’Garden of Gethsemane.’

	The fourth of twenty panels depicting the Passion of Christ in the Chapelle des Pénitents Blancs at La Tour shows Jesus praying for strength in the Garden of Gethsemane while his disciples are fast asleep.
The fresco was executed in 1492 on the chapel's left wall by Currand Bravesi and Guirard Nadal, two of the so-called 'peintres primitifs niçois' (primitive painters of Nice).
