The Île de la Jatte or Île de la Grande Jatte is an island in the river Seine, located in the department of Hauts-de-Seine, and shared between the two communes of Neuilly-sur-Seine and Levallois. It is situated at the very gates of Paris, being 7 km distant from the towers of Notre Dame and 3 km from the Place de l'Étoile. The island is nearly 2 km long and almost 200 m wide at its widest point, and has about 4,000 inhabitants. Its name translates as "Island of the Bowl" or "Island of the Big Bowl".
It is best known as the setting for Georges Seurat's pointillist oil painting, Un Dimanche après-midi à l'Île de la Grande Jatte , and also for the Stephen Sondheim musical, Sunday in the Park with George.
