Arts and culture

Erik showed profound interest in culture, history and art since a tender age. His interest in the works of Louis Couperus (1863-1923), a Dutch novelist at the turn of the 20th century comparable to Oscar Wilde and Gabriele d'Annunzio, started at high school and progressed into editorial board membership of Arabesken, the magazine of the Louis Couperus Society and eventually into general board membership of this society.

Erik also acted as editor of a spin-off initiative of the society: the blog rond1900.nl, dedicated to turn of the century culture and history.
