  • Marianne Stokes (1855–1927) - Morris & co-1912 Ehret die Frauen tapestry the tapestry Ehret die Frauen was inspired by a quotation from Schiller's 1796 poem, 'Wurde der Frauen' (Women's Worth) which appears in the upper border: 'honour the women, they broid and weave heavenly roses into earthly life'. Below the figures are labelled left to right: Courage, Caring, Love, Wisdom and Fidelity. The original hangs in the Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester.
  • The story begins with a song which serves as prologue; and then prose takes up the narrative, telling how Aucassin, son of Count Garin of Beaucaire , so loved Nicolette, a Saracen maiden, who had been sold to the Viscount of Beaucaire, baptized and adopted by him, that he had forsaken knighthood and chivalry and even refused to defend his father's territories from enemies. Accordingly his father ordered the Viscount to send Nicolette away, but the Viscount locked her in a tower of his palace instead. Aucassin is imprisoned by his father to prevent him from going after his beloved Nicolette. But Nicolette escapes, hears Aucassin lamenting in his cell, and comforts him with sweet words. She flees to the forest outside the gates, and there, in order to test Aucassin's fidelity, builds a rustic home to await his arrival. When he is released from prison, Aucassin hears from shepherd lads of Nicolette's hiding-place, and seeks her bower . The lovers, united, resolve to leave the country. They board a ship and are driven to the (fictional) kingdom of "Torelore", whose king they find in child-bed, while the queen is with the army. After a three years' stay in Torelore they are captured by Saracen pirates and separated. Contrary winds blow Aucassin's boat back to Beaucaire, where he succeeds to Garin's estate, while Nicolette is carried to "Cartage" (perhaps a play on Carthage or Cartagena . The sight of the city reminds her that she is the daughter of its king, and a royal marriage is planned for her. But she avoids this by disguising herself in a minstrel's garb and sets sail for Beaucaire to rejoin her beloved Aucassin. There, before Aucassin who does not immediately recognize her, she sings of her own adventures, and in due time makes herself known to him.
  • Tempera on mahogany panel prepared with gesso, 16 3/8 × 13 3/8 (417 × 341) Purchased from the Fine Art Society under the terms of the Chantrey Bequest 1977 Marianne Stokes, née Priendlsberger, was known primarily as a painter of genre and religious subjects. Born in Austria in 1855, she later studied at the Academies of Gratz and Munich before going to Paris. In 1884, while painting in Brittany, she met and married the English painter Adrian Stokes. Thereafter she regularly exhibited in London, at the Royal Academy, Grosvenor Gallery, London Gallery and elsewhere. ‘ Candlemas Day’, the title under which this work was first exhibited in 1901, has also been known as ‘Dutch Girl reading by Candlelight’. In subject it relates to a group of genre paintings she exhibited in a ‘Dutch’ exhibition held jointly with her husband at the Fine Art Society in 1900, in preparation for which they had spent part of the previous year in Holland. This picture was not however included in the exhibition, and in her discussion of Marianne Stokes's latest works in 1901 (op.cit.) Alice Meynell makes it clear that they were done in London, probably in the artist's studio at 6 Edwardes Square, Kensington. Like a number of other painters with whose work Marianne Stokes has affinities - notably Joseph Southall and the Birmingham school - the artist abandoned oils towards the turn of the century in favour of tempera painting, and, ‘Candlemas Day’ is a good example of her work in this medium . According to Alice Meynell, this change occurred in 1899. It followed her reading of Mrs Christina Herringham's influential translation of Cennino Cennini's The Book of the Art of Cennino Cennini with accompanying Notes on Medieval Art Methods of that year, and her own close study of the Italian primitives. It is clear that Marianne Stokes associated the use of tempera with the purity and simplicity of an earlier art; Wilfred Meynell (op.cit.) noted that ‘Mrs Adrian Stokes regards the choice of medium as practically a matter of ethics’, and quotes her as saying ‘It seems to me a medium which lends itself most to spirituality, sincerity and purity of colour’. It has not been possible to establish any early history for this work, all labels and inscriptions having been removed prior to its acquisition by the Tate.
  • Giovanni Marradi is a pianist, composer and arranger. He was born as the son of the famed Italian trumpeter and conductor Alfredo Marradi; his great-grandfather, also named Giovanni Marradi, was a legendary poet and composer as well. Giovanni began playing piano at age five, and three years later was sent to study composition and technique with Michael Cheskinov at the Russian Conservatory. In the years to follow, he emerged as a remarkably prolific composer, often writing as many as ten new songs each week. Forming his own label, NewCastle Records, he also hosted his own weekly television series, Giovanni's World of Music. His frequent appearances on cable's QVC network offered a major boost to his international visibility as well, and in one 12-minute stretch alone he sold over 120,000 albums. In 1998 Giovanni signed with Atlantic Records, making his label debut with Destiny early the following year. Classic Nights with Giovanni television series was released in the mid-1999, trailed later that same year by The Magic of Christmas DVD. To date, Giovanni has sold millions of cds around the world and currently has over 30 CDs available directly through his website. Giovanni will soon release his latest CDs, "Because I Love You" and "Softly". He is currently composing, recording and performing and lives in Southern California.

    2. 2. Marianne Stokes the Pre - Raphaelite movement Marianne Stokes (1855-1927) Marianne Stokes (1855 Graz – 1927 London), born Marianne Preindlsberger in the Austrian province of Styria, was an Austrian painter. She settled in England after her marriage to Adrian Scott Stokes (1854-1935), the landscape painter, whom she had met in Pont-Aven. Marianne Stokes was considered one of the leading artists in Victorian England. As a member of the Royal Academy, Stokes exhibited her paintings, such as Aucassin and Nicollette , and they were met with much love and admiration, both for their appeal and Stokes s devotion to the rustic genre style, no matter the subject. The tapestry Ehret die Frauen was inspired by a quotation from Schiller's 1796 poem, 'Wurde der Frauen' (Women's Worth) which appears in the upper border: 'honour the women, they broid and weave heavenly roses into earthly life'. Below the figures are labelled left to right: Courage, Caring, Love, Wisdom and Fidelity. The original hangs in the Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester. The tapestry itself represents five different aspects of the virtues of womanhood. The women featured from left to right are Schutz (Protection or Courage), Pflege (Nurture), Liebe (Love), Wissen (Wisdom) and Treue (Fidelity) . The Schiller verse in full Ehret die frauen sie flechten und meben, himmlische rosen ins irdische leben (Honour the women, they braid and weave heavenly roses into earthly life) , is written within the border of the tapestry. The English translation seems to differ a little from person to person, but the general implication seems to be the same. 84 85 Designed by artist Marianne Stokes this tapestry was woven by John Martin and Gordon Berry, Morris & Co, Merton Abbey in 1912
