Ana Sacerdote ( born in 1925) is an Argentine abstract artist who currently lives in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Sacerdote graduated from the Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes Prilidiano Pueyrredon in Buenos Aires and studied under Lino Enea Spilimbergo and Hector Cartier. In the mid-1950s, she exhibited with Carmelo Arden Quin, Martin Blaszko, Gregorio Vardanega, Virgilio Villalba, Luis Tomasello, and others in the Asociacion Arte Nuevo in Buenos Aires, which was organized by Aldo Pellegrini. In 1956, with recommendations from Jorge Romero Brest and Pablo Curatella Manes, Sacerdote was awarded a grant by the French government to live and study in Paris. She continued painting throughout the 1960s, when she became interested in video art and later computer-generated drawings. She created an animated film based on her geometric paintings that was shown at the I Festival Internacional do Cinema de Animação no Brasil VIII Bienal de São Paulo in São Paulo, Brazil in 1965. Beginning in the 1970s, she experimented with computer-generated drawings and continued to create video art.
