ERIK HEIDE

Early woodcuts
Café exhibition

Erik Heide (b. 1934) is best known as a sculptor. Many of his sculptures can be seen in Danish churches, in cemeteries and in public spaces. But he was originally trained as a painter and graphic artist at the Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen in the years 1951-57.
The café exhibition shows a number of woodcuts, both colored woodcuts and black and white from the study period and from the years thereafter. Erik Heide used the woodcut as a travel illustration on a trip to Greece in 1961 and in Egypt in 1963.
The many fine prints can be found in KunstCentret Silkeborg Bad's collection of graphics from Thomas and Poul Pedersen's collections.
