Ellen Von Wiegand

Upon recognising a passion for art history and the Italian language, Ellen moved from her hometown of Menlo Park, California to spend her university years at John Cabot University in Rome. Several gallery internships during her studies led to an interest in contemporary art and to her decision to pursue a Masters in modern and contemporary art at Christie’s Education in London. Following her Masters Ellen spent time working at both the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice and Bonhams Auction House in London. Ellen used to be The Culture Trip’s Americas Editor and contributed significantly to the development of the site.
