Place Vintimille-- does it still exist?

A couple of years ago I became very interested in the early 19th century artist Edouard Vuillard. As an artist myself I have always been interested in that period of art history. One of his paintings was done on a large standing screen which is now in the National gallery in Washington. I love this painting.

As it's been a few years since I've been in Paris I would like to make another visit soon and want to know if this park [or square] still exists as pictured in the painting. He painted a few other views of this area but none affects me like this particular view. Can anyone tell me where it would be located or if it still even looks similar?

Thanks so much!

Of course if you haven't seen the painting you wouldn't know if it looks the same! I wasn't thinking about that! Just would like to know the area of the city where the park would be located.. Thanks!

Is this the painting: impressionistsgallery.co.uk/artists/Artists/…

The square exists and is recognizable. You can find it easily with google maps.

The Place is now called Place Adolphe-Max; it is in the 9th arrondisement. It was painted by Vuillard in the early 20th century (1911).

Thank you iverh! Yes, that is the painting--- if only the National Gallery would sell me the screen.

Thanks, French Twinkie--- I will look it up-- would love to see the park and the area although of course I wouldn't be able to see it from Vuillard's viewpoint. [and I meant to say early 20th century].

The Google map makes "le square", as the Parisians often call a small garden within a fence, rectangular but the photo (in link 5) shows that it is circular. ..with much less greenery than in the painting...

Thank you new posters.

Would love to have an apartment there and spend some lovely days just sitting in that park. That whole square just says "Paris" to me. I will have to look up the Guggenheim to see if there is an image.
