17th century painting goes on display in St Anne’s

Thursday January 26th 2017

‘The Agony of Christ in Gethsemane’ has gone on display in St Anne’s Cathedral.

A 17th century painting entitled The Agony of Christ in Gethsemane has gone on display in St Anne’s Cathedral, Belfast.

The 6ft X 3ft oil on canvas painting, attributed to French painter Jean-Bernard Restout, has been given to the Cathedral on long term loan by Mr Samuel Greer from Co Armagh, who does not have a suitable hanging space where it can be best displayed to its credit. 

Art and restoration experts Colin Finley and Dougie Bickerstaff from Grallagh Studios, Rathfriland, were in St Anne’s on Thursday January 26 to hang the picture in the Ambulatory for visitors to view.
