TENNANT, Dudley

(1867 - 1952)

Dudley Tennant was born in Hanley, Staffordshire. After his father died in 1880 he was raised in Everton, Lancashire, by his widowed mother, attending Liverpool School of Art. He began working as an illustrator, artist and landscape painter in the 1890s and later in that decade he moved to London, where he exhibited paintings at both the Royal Academy and the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool.  In the early part of the 20th Century he was a regular illustrator for many books and magazines, including the 'Illustrated London News' and 'The Strand' working in colour, halftone and black and white. His most popular works include the beguiling Poems of Passion and Pleasure, written by Ella Wheeler Wilcox (1912) and a collection of Charles Dickens adaptations, Tales Told to Children by Ethel Lindsay published 1917 – 1921.  His illustrative work was very versatile and always sought to capture the essence of the stories and poetry he was illustrating.
