Hawaiian Venus Asleep may follow in the art historical tradition of the reclining female figure, yet offers the novel perspective of Madge Tennent. Classical tradition required that depictions of women in the nude were acceptable, only if a representative of Venus. Showcasing Hawaiian women as robed goddesses, Tennent reinforces and elevates their grandeur. With her signature elegance of line and form, Madge portrays this reclining woman with sensuous, dreamy beauty.
