Since the founding of the "Society of Friends
of Jongkind" in March 1970 by Jean-Maurice Rieu (1921-2012)
at the end of 2014, about 380 people attended. Some have joined
few years. At the end of that year, 2014, some 63 members were "active",
some of them for quite a long time.
The vast majority of members are in French territory; However, we must mention a few members who come from the birthplace of Johan Barthold Jongkind or a few other countries; Jongkind's work has no boundaries. Some members "institutionnels" are part of the Society of Friends of Jongkind like documentation of the Orsay Museum (Paris), the bibliothèque of the Belgian Royal Museum (Brussels) or the Library of Art and Archaeology in Geneva.
All members adhere to defined goals that you can
find elsewhere in this site in the statutes of the association.
