Born in 1994, the Hartung-Bergman Foundation is the result of the lives and wishes of two very important painters of the 20th century: Hans Hartung (1904-1989) and Anna-Eva Bergman (1909-1987). Very few institutions in France and abroad have managed to preserve in their unity spaces for pictorial creations, the creations themselves, and the memory of a daily life on the same spot. Thanks to Hans Hartung and Anna-Eva Bergman, such an opportunity is possible. It allows for a truly immersive experience in the creative process. This process is conducted, in Bergman’s case as in Hartung’s, by a quest for the absolute, based on the perfect mastery of simple and essential elements: rhythms, colours, materials, lights.

After 2 years of construction and since 2022, the Foundation has open to the public. In a few figures, 1500 square metres of garden, 500 square metres of terrace, and 600 square metres of exhibition, mediation and workshop areas are now accessible and offer an immersion in an extraordinary place by the variety of its heritage: its buildings, its vegetation, its works, its archives. Everything has been adapted to accommodate the PRM public. The Hartung-Bergman Foundation is a private law institution recognised as being of public utility.

Fondation Hartung-Bergman works in the general interest by making its architectural and artistic heritage known to amateurs from all over the world through local and off-wall exhibitions. The Foundation also dedicates part of the buildings (accessible by professional appointment only) to research. In this context, it welcomes academics, curators, historians and critics in residence, who work in particular on its very abundant archive collection
