Dea Trier Mørch’s breakthrough novel Vinterbørn (Winter’s Child; 1976) brought her international acclaim for the candid way in which it followed a group of women in Copenhagen as they experienced the latter stages of pregnancy and childbirth. The writer originally trained as an artist at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts – in the wake of her literary success, she created a series of linocuts, depicting scenes from the maternity ward. This exhibition presents some 90 of Mørch’s works on paper, including the Vinterbørn series as well as earlier etchings recording the committed socialist’s travels to the Soviet Union.
