Born Madeline Cook in Doulwich, England, in 1889, Madge Tennent entered art school at the age of twelve, and the following year her parents, who recognized and encouraged her talent, moved to Paris to enable Madeline to study there.
She and her family subsequently returned to South Africa, and after her marriage in 1915 to Hugh Cowper Tennenet, she relocated to his native New Zealand. In 1917 Hugh Tennent accepted a position as treasurer to the government of British Samoa. In 1923 the Tennents left Samoa to go to England, stopping in Hawaii. They were entranced with the islands and were persuaded to stay, beginning what was described by an acquaintance as “the most compatible of marriages between Madge Tennent the artist and the golden people of Hawaii.” A friend’s gift of a book on Gauguin set her on an artistic course that lasted fifty years, during which she portrayed Hawaiian women in a style that increasingly became her own. Tennent had one-person shows at the Honolulu Academy of Arts, and her works have been exhibited in London, Paris, New York, Chicago, and San Francisco as well as frequently in Honolulu.
