Anna Eva Bergman. A Journey Within
Norwegian artist Anna Eva Bergman (1909–1987) is the key figure in postwar painting. Free, visionary artist whose work, characterised by the use of gold and silver leaf, is a powerful celebration of the beauty of nature, the landscapes of the Far North, and the Mediterranean.
Anna-Eva Bergman nonetheless remains under-appreciated in Europe today. Her work, with its singular painterly language based on a vocabulary of pure forms, merits considerably more attention in art history terms, alongside the work of such other great women artists as her contemporaries Hilma af Klint, Georgia O’Keeffe and Sonia Delaunay.
