Eve Sonneman: Fresson Photographs at Foundation Cartier pour l’art
Contemporain, Paris, France
Opening October 20, 2014
To create the twenty color photographs presented in this exhibition, Eve Sonneman used the Fresson
process for the first time. This printing technique, discovered in the 1890 by Theodore-Henri Fresson, is
based on the utilization of coal. Eve Sonneman was an artist-in-residence at the Cartier Foundation,
France, during the summer of 1989. In these photographs, she portrays an American point of view of the
Parisian countryside. These photographs are now in the permanent collection of the Foundation Cartier
pour l’art Contemporain, 261 Boulevard Raspail, F-7501, Paris.
They were exhibited at Brooklyn Academy of Music in October, 1989. Two years later, they were shown
at Fenimore Art Museum, Cooperstown, New York.
In May 1994, Foundation Cartier moved to Paris into the architecture of glass and steel that had been
created for it by Jean Nouvel.
Foundation Cartier promotes discovery by revealing young artists to the public and by unveiling the
secret side of world-renowned artists. By opening up the most diverse realms of creation and knowledge,
it stimulates creativity and discovery through its exhibitions in Paris.
