Biographical Note

Marjorie Martinet (November 3, 1886- September 1, 1981) was an artist and art teacher who was born and raised in Baltimore. She attended Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia, where she met her eventual life partner, the prominent sculptor Beatrice Fenton, but graduated from the Maryland Institute (now MICA). Their relationship was the part of a 2014 exhibit about LGBT artists at the American Archives of American Art in Washington, DC. Martinet lived for many years with her parents at 4102 Ridgewood Avenue in Baltimore, and was actively involved with the Woman’s Literary Club of Baltimore. She was also a graduate of The Oldfields School in Glencoe, Maryland and maintained a close relationship with the school for many years. From 1910 until 1940, she also ran her own art school located at 516 N Charles Street, and later at 10 East Franklin Street in Baltimore. She seems to have moved to Philadelphia sometime in the late 1960s to live with Beatrice Fenton and Fenton’s sister, Doris, at 621 Westview Street. She appears to have died in Philadelphia, but is buried at Woodlawn Cemetery in Baltimore.
