In this painting Judas kneels to kiss the hand of Christ in the Garden of Gethsemane at night after the Last Supper. With this kiss Judas betrays Christ by identifying him to the soldiers standing on the right. The soldiers have raised spears and a lighted torch and are about to arrest Christ. Although unreligious, Ricketts used biblical subjects like this to express his inner self and comment on life.
