Christine von der Linn is a Senior Specialist in the Book Department, focusing on Art, Architecture, Press and Illustrated Books and Illustration Art.
Christine graduated from Bard College, where she studied architecture, art history and literature. She was an archivist of the Livingston family library at Clermont State Historic Site in Columbia County, NY before moving to New York City in 1993 to join Swann as Book Department Administrator. In 1995 she was promoted to Cataloguer.
Christine holds certificates in German language and culture from Collegium Palatinum in Heidelberg, Germany, and in rare book cataloguing from the University of Virginia School of Library Science. She is a member of ArtTable, the leadership organization for women in the visual arts. Christine commutes from New Jersey where she is a strong supporter of the local book community, lending her time to benefits and charity auctions for libraries and independent bookstores.
When she is not involved in book-related activities, she uses her degrees in cooking and nutrition to teach classes and workshops on health-supportive cooking and food sustainability. Recently, she combined her two loves in a lecture on the history of gastronomic literature of Europe and America for private groups at Swann and in New Jersey.
