The Island of Grand Jatte (Île de la Grande Jatte)

Recommendation by Lemi

Georges Suerat seemed to be struck by the same inspiration when he painted “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte.” Through thousands of tiny dots, he rendered people sprawled on the green lawns, little children, and even rowers on the waters. The actual riverbanks have now been reinforced to prevent flooding and erosion, so the green lawns in the paintings can’t be found here anymore. However, hidden paths outlining the island bring you right by the water for a pleasant stroll. It may not be the same as in Suerat’s time, but it carries on in the spirit of his painting. A little tip: try to visit the very tip of the island, past the park, for an unrivaled view of the river.
