Anna Eva-Bergman (1909–87) is regarded as one of the most important painters of the twentieth century in Norway, though she was long overshadowed by her husband, the painter Hans Hartung. After the 1940s, Bergman concentrated on abstraction in painting, her formal language drawing on the archetypal motifs of the Nordic landscape and Scandinavian mythology, such as stones, cliffs, the sea, horizons, and boats. She explored these themes more deeply during her productive period in the Antibes, inspired by the uniquely Mediterranean experience of light. This volume explores Bergman’s late work for the first time, presenting a concentrated selection of her paintings and drawings depicting landscapes in the sun.
