    “Constructed over the course of a century, Notre-Dame-des-Victoires is the only extant remnant of a convent that had been demolished in 1859. Inside the church are a few noteworthy works of art and craftsmanship: paintings by Carle Van Loo; an eighteenth-century organ case; and, by sculptor Jean Collignon, the tomb and bust of composer Jean-Baptiste Lully.” Lully died in 1687 of abscess after hitting his toe with a long staff (a precursor to the baton) while conducting the orchestra and developing a gangrene which spread because he refused to get his toe amputated.
