Anne Van der Linden (born 1959 in England, lives and works in Saint-Denis, France) is a French painter and drawer. Being of a literary education, she came early to drawing expression, then to oil painting. After an abstract period, she developed her figurative and crude style from the 9O’s. Her art is in the filiation of German expressionism, middle-age engravings, cartoonists as Robert Crumb and many more. Her attachment to literature brought her naturally to illustration activity, for edition projects as well as newspapers. Searching to express through visual arts the tensed interaction between inner wild life and social normalization could be her main concern. Her work has been widely exhibited and published in France and foreign countries.
