Jean-Gabriel Eynard made two views of Geneva, which together form a panorama of a section of his adopted city. He stood in the old city on the left bank of the Rhone River, looking toward the quays along the right bank. A wide bridge crosses the river, connecting with a short footbridge to wooded Rousseau Island, named after the famous writer and philosopher of the 1700s, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, a native of Geneva.
