Perrotin announces a collaboration with the Estate of Anna-Eva Bergman

Perrotin is pleased to announce a collaboration with the estate of Anna-Eva Bergman, a central figure in the development of European abstraction. The gallery will debut its partnership at this year's iteration of TEFAF New York, with a nested solo presentation by the artist, opening on May 5.

Later this year, the gallery will present an extensive exhibition of work by Anna-Eva Bergman at Perrotin New York, marking the first-ever survey dedicated to the late artist in the Americas. Concurrently, her biography, written by Thomas Schlesser (director of Fondation Hartung-Bergman), will be published by Gallimard in October 2022.
Additionally, the Fondation Hartung-Bergman, an organization devoted to the legacy of Hans Hartung and Anna-Eva Bergman, will open to the public for the first time, on May 11, while inaugurating a new research program in the former home and studio of Hartung and Bergman.
Perrotin, which has represented Hans Hartung’s estate for five years, is pleased to promote the work of Anna-Eva Bergman through the staging of this historic exhibition, reinforcing the remarkable work Galerie Poggi has been doing since 2012.

Anna-Eva Bergman was born in Stockholm on May 29, 1909. She studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Oslo (1927) and at the School of Applied Arts in Vienna (1928). Bergman’s writings and drawings show her sense of humor and observation, and demonstrate a virtuosic talent for drawing. Later, she would prove herself as an illustrator and journalist. In April 1929, she moved to Paris and enrolled at the André Lhote Academy, where she met Hartung. They got married the same year in Dresden.
