The third church at Cluny

Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris

The lithograph depicts the east end of the monastery church Saint-Pierre-et-Paul at Cluny (Cluny III) as it might have appeared in the sixteenth century.

This image shows the church in its pre-Revolutionary state before its nearly complete reduction to ruins, necessitating an imaginative reconstruction by the artist.
