For the first time, the gallery brings together two major Norwegian artists, as the Musée d'Orsay is devoting a major exhibition to Edvard Munch, and the Musée d'Art Moderne in Paris is planning a retrospective of Anna Eva Bergman for spring 2023.

From the perspective of landscape, both painters meet and express a mystical and cosmological relationship with nature. If Edvard Munch's personality and work are obviously marked by his depressive disorders, his existential anguish and his neurotic relationship with the society of his time, another aspect of his character is revealed through his relationship with nature, which he depicted as much
as human nature. Particularly rare on the international art market, and even more so in France, two landscape paintings of Edvard Munch from a private Norwegian collection will be shown for the first time in France.

The Hartung-Bergman Foundation has selected a group of several paintings and engravings of Anna-Eva Bergman bearing witness to the same mystical vocation, leading Thomas Schlesser to wonder whether Bergman's abstract aesthetic was not, in fact, a transfiguration of Munch's work.

The exhibition was conceived in close partnership with the Hartung-Bergman Foundation (Antibes) and Morten Zondag Kunstformidling (Norway).
