Anna-Eva Bergman

Perrotin New York is pleased to present the first survey exhibition in the United States of the late Norwegian-born painter Anna-Eva Bergman (1909-1987), entitled Revelation. A central figure in the development of European modernism, Bergman abstracted the landscapes of Norway into spiritually transcendent compositions. Despite Bergman’s colorful life and strikingly original creative output, there has yet to be such a spotlight on her talent — a situation that is soon to change, given a major pair of retrospectives set to open at the Musée d’Art Moderne de Paris and the National Museum of Oslo in 2023.

This interview is with Thomas Schlesser, the director of the Hans Hartung and Anna-Eva Bergman foundation.
