les presses du réel
Anna-Eva Bergman -
Reference monograph.
The Fondation Hans Hartung & Anna-Eva Bergman commissioned five authors to undertake a new analysis of Bergman's work from five different angles. The result is a lavishly illustrated book that documents an oeuvre which is unique in the history of modern art.
The Norwegian-born French painter Anna-Eva Bergman (1909–1987) was a multifarious artist. Prior to the 1950s she drew illustrations and caricatures for the press, kept notebooks on her ideas about art, published articles, and wrote an autobiography, a novel, and a cookery book.
At the same time she explored the realm of painting, embarking down the path of abstraction in the late 1940s and ultimately forging a unique style based on the use of gold and silver foil as pictorial elements to convey archetypal forms based on nature and Nordic mythology.
Edited by Christine Lamothe.
