Anh Duong (born October 25, 1960) is an American artist, actress, and model, born in Bordeaux, France, to a Spanish mother and a Vietnamese father. She is known for self-portraits, which she has compared to a visual diary.
Duong studied architecture at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, France, and danced with the Franchetti Academy of Classical Dance. Her early youth was spent modeling for Vogue, Christian Lacroix, and John Galliano, among others.
In 1988, Duong moved to New York City and began a career as an artist. Her first solo exhibition was held in 1991 at Sperone Westwater Gallery. In 2004 Artnet magazine said, "Duong's paintings should be viewed as contributions to a different genre - they belong alongside the work of women such as Dora Maar, Anaïs Nin, and Frida Kahlo, artists who compellingly exposed interior worlds whose beauty, intelligence, and character inspired creativity, both in themselves and in others". A book about her work, Anh Duong (Self) Portraits, was published by Assouline.
As an actress, Duong's credits include:
- My Best Friend's Wedding
- High Art
- Love Me
- I Shot Andy Warhol
- The Mambo Kings
- Scent of a Woman
- Appropriate Behavior
In June 2006 (divorced 2008), in Amagansett, New York, Duong married Barton Hubbard Quillen, an architect whose maternal grandmother was the third wife of financier Thomas Mellon Evans Jr., owner of 1981 Kentucky Derby winner Pleasant Colony.
