Negre produced a small group of photographs of nuns by these cloisters but this image of a priest
seated with his prayer book is believed to be unique. This previously unrecorded work was,
presumably, given by Negre to his friend Le Secq, an appropriate action given that the two men
collaborated on a similarly posed image of Negre as a monk reading a book.
