What is the meaning of "La Grande Jatte"?

Answer

"La Grande Jatte" is a French island within the river Seine, and its name translates to "the big bowl." It was the subject of a pointillist oil painting in 1886 by Georges Seurat called "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte."

The island is a mile long and serves as a relaxing getaway for Parisians, according to Artble. Alfred Sisley and Claude Monet also created works of art depicting scenes on the Île de la Grande Jatte. Monet painted "Springtime on La Grande Jatte" in 1878, and Sisley's "L'ile de la Grande Jatte" depicts the island during the winter or fall.
