ANNA-EVA BERGMAN
born in Norway, 1909-1987 - booth 9G07

In partnership with the Fondation Hartung-Bergman (Antibes, FR), the gallery Jérôme Poggi is glad to gather an exceptional ensemble of ten rare paintings by the French-Norwegian artist Anna-Eva Bergman (1909-1987). Renowned for the abstract and minimalist silver and gold paintings Bergman realized during the 1970's and 1980's, inspired by Nordic landscape, the solo show at ARCO will focus on her production during the 1960's, strongly influenced by her travels to Spain and the time she spent living there.
Pursuing the rediscovery of her work, a number of major shows will be devoted to Anna-Eva Bergman in the upcoming three years in Valencia (curators Vicente Todoli and Nuria Enguita), at National Gallery in Berlin and at Museum of Modern Art (MAMVP) in Paris. A major exhibition, gathering for the  rst time Anna-Eva Bergman and her husband Hans Hartung, will be held in Korea in 2019. She is currently having an extensive solo show at Domaine de Kerguéhennec, center for contemporary art in Brittany.
