The Norwegian-born French painter Anna-Eva Bergman (1909-1987) was a multifarious artist. Prior to the 1950s she drew illustrations and caricatures for the press, kept notebooks on her ideas about art, published articles and wrote an autobiography, a novel, and a cookery book. At the same time she explored the realm of painting, embarking down the path of abstraction in the late 1940s and ultimately forging a unique style based on the use of gold and silver foil as pictorial elements to convey archetypal forms based on nature and Nordic mythology. Essays by Bertrand Tillier, Marie-NoÃ«l Rio, Frank Claustrat, Fabienne Dumont and Franz-W. Kaiser.
