ゲッセマネの祈り The Garden of Gethsemane

作品解説

 ヴァザーリは16世紀イタリアの画家・彫刻家でしたが、何よりもイタリア・ルネサンスの美術家たちの伝記を記した『芸術家列伝』(1550年初版)の著者として広く知られています。本作の主題は、キリストが「最後の晩餐」の後に、オリーヴ山の麓のゲッセマネで祈りを捧げたが三人の弟子はその傍らで眠りこけた、という聖書の記述に基づきます。中でも天使がキリストに指し示す聖杯は、ルカによる福音書にのみ認められるモチーフです。背景には、ユダが兵士を引き連れやってくる場面が描かれています。  本作は、1572年に制作された同一構図の作品に関連して描かれた、最晩年の作と考えられます。(出典: 展示室作品解説パネル)

The Garden of Gethsemane

The subject was drawn from the New Testament books Matthew and Luke. Christ, knowing of Judas's betrayal, went to the Garden of Gethsemane at the base of the Mount of Olives after the Last Supper, accompanied by three of his disciples, Peter, Jacob and John. There he prayed to God in his suffering; an angel gave him strength while his three disciples slept. Christ is the focal point of a triangular composition, with the three Disciples (from the left, Peter, John and Jacob) seen sleeping in the lower section. The Mannerist style can be seen in the richly varied forms and the flowing dynamism and tension in the composition. In the upper left Judas is shown leading the crowd that will arrest Christ, traditional iconography for this subject. Previously this work was thought to be a relatively early period painting dating to ca. 1545-46, but in terms of its style and an analysis of related drawings, it would seem that the work dates to the artist's final years.
