The Association aims to promote the work, life and family of Georges MOREAU DE TOURS and of his wife Thérèse de CHAMP RENAUD, MOREAU DE TOURS, as well as their circle of friends, artists, musicians, poets and writers between Paris and Bois-le-Roi.

The Association will organise lectures, seminars and visits planned around an exhibition in Paris of the works of Georges MOREAU DE TOURS and Thérèse de CHAMP RENAUD MOREAU DE TOURS, and of the artists who lived at Bois-le-Roi.

In order to promote the contemporary artists and crafstmen living in Bois-le-Roi and around, the Association des Amis de Moreau de Tours, first created as a learned society around the life and work of the artist, has now diversified its activities. A page is dedicated to them on the association’s website, THE NEW BOHÈME, with videos of interviews posted on YouTube. A yearly Salon, Under the Sign of the Muses , a meeting place of exchange, is organized to recreate the friendly and fraternal spirit of the 19th century Bohème, and to present the artists’ latest works.
