The Agony in the Garden by Andrea Mantegna, 1455. This strange composition is full of signs and symbols, and was one of the panels used in the San Zeno altarpiece in Verona. It weirdly reminds me of Surrealist works, even though it was painted in mid-quattrocento Italy. You can read more about this painting at the National Gallery online.
