On 25 July 1875, Vincent visited the village of Ville d’Avray, southwest of Paris, with fellow painter Frans Soek (?–1879) and Soek’s family. In 1855–56, Camille Corot (1796–1875) had painted four frescoes in the transept of the village church: Adam and Eve Chased from Paradise, Baptism of Christ by St John, Christ in the Garden of Olives and Magdalen at Prayer. The church also featured a much earlier work by Corot: St Jerome (1837). Vincent probably did not recognise all the paintings, of which one was unsigned, for he only mentioned three in a letter describing the visit.
