About Tony DuquetteView Profile »
Tony Duquette (American, 1914-1999) was an artist who designed for film and stage productions. Duquette studied at the Chouinard Art Institute, Los Angeles and the Yale School of Theater. He worked with designers William Haines and James Pendleton, and through the support of Lady Elsie de Wolfe Mendl, Duquette became one of the most popular designers in Los Angeles. He produced works for Metro Goldwyn Mayer and designed for the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, J. Paul Getty, Norton Simon, Elizabeth Arden, Mary Pickford, and Buddy Rogers. His works were exhibited at the Pavilion de Marsan of the Louvre, Paris, for which he was the first American artist to have a solo exhibition at the Louvre. Duquette’s work was also exhibited in solo exhibitions at the de Young Museum and Palace of the Legion of Honor, San Francisco, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the Museum of the City of New York, among others. His designs for the original production of “Camelot” on Broadway earned Duquette a Tony Award for Best Costume. In 1979, Duquette and his wife, Elizabeth, started the Anthony and Elizabeth Duquette Foundation for the Living Arts, where they present exhibitions, such as “The Art of the Found Object” and “The Fabric Mosaic Tapestry.” Duquette’s home in Beverly Hills, “DAWNRIDGE,” still serves as the head of his design organization today.Interested in consigning works by Tony Duquette?
