A first day cover issued on 27 October 2001 to commemorate the 110th anniversary of the death of Johan Barthold Jongkind (1819-1891), a painter originally from Holland, who lived in La Côte Saint-André from 1878 until his death. The youth of the town would affectionately call him “Père Jonquille”. He painted, among many others, scenes from La Côte and its countryside, all of which are held in museums and private collections. The picture on the top left of the above envelope reproduces his painting of the Place Saint-André in La Côte, dated 1887. A selection of his stunning La Côte paintings are reproduced in A. Moulin et al, La Côte Saint André en Isère (Gillonnay: Alexandre Moulin, 2005).
