 Cluny
The  Benedictine Abbey of Cluny in the French department [i.e., an administrative division similar to what Americans know as a "county"-Ed.] of Saône-et-Loire in Burgundy was once the center of the highest spiritual and intellectual endeavor in Europe and boasted, before St. Peter of Rome was built, the largest church in Christendom.
Cluny was sold in 1798, a street was built through the nave of the church; in 1811 the bell towers of the sanctuary were dynamited, the ruins used as a rock quarry up to 1823, till finally it was accorded protection in 1826.
Cluny suffered severely from the onslaughts of the two 18th-century movements hostile to anything medieval: the Enlightenment, with its classical mania for regularity and uniformity, and the Revolution.

 WetCanvas: Virtual Museum: Individual Artists: Edouard Vuillard
Edouard Vuillard was born on November 11, 1868, at Cuisseaux in the Saone-et-Loire department of France.
For some years Vuillard was almost completely out of the public eye, but in 1936 he showed with other former Nabis, and in 1938 a Vuillard retrospective exhibition in Paris revived interest in him.
Vuillard focused his attention upon the decorative element of painting, producing warm, colorful surfaces that did not attempt to give the illusion of depth.
