Fergus McCaffrey is proud to present its third exhibition of the work of Birgit Jürgenssen (1949–2003). The show of drawings, cyanotypes, and other photographic works will be on view at Fergus McCaffrey, St. Barth.

Born and educated in Vienna, Jürgenssen died prematurely at the age of fifty-four. Her artwork received scant attention during her lifetime; however, recent monographs by Gabriele Schor and Abigail Solomon-Godeau have begun to spread awareness of the depth and breadth of Jürgenssen’s artistic achievement.
