Let B be the Bergman projection associated to a domain Ω on which the \({\bar\partial}\) -Neumann operator is compact. We show that arbitrary L2 derivatives of Bf are controlled by derivatives of f taken in a single, distinguished direction. As a consequence, functions not contained in \({C^{\infty}(\overline{\Omega})}\) that are mapped by B to \({C^{\infty}(\overline{\Omega})}\) are explicitly described.
