In 2009, the Maison des Artistes had a membership of 24,000 artist-authors, mainly graphic designers and painters. Their numbers increased by an average of 6% per annum between 1999 and 2006, and has remained relatively stable since 2007. Almost 60% of artist-author members are men. However, the proportion of women is increasing, particularly amongst visual artists, painters and engravers. The average age of artist-author members is 44, with the majority of them living in the Île de France area. Around 50% of them share in 15% of the Maison des Artistes' artist-author revenue, whilst some 10% of the wealthier artist-authors are responsible for 43% of the Maison's revenue.
