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
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).
