Charles Adrian Scott Stokes was an English landscape painter of the late 19th and early 20th century. As a cotton merchant in Liverpool he was quite wealthy and so he had enough time for his hobby, painting with watercolours. John Herbert happened to see one of his paintings and urged him to submit his work to the Royal Academy. He was immediately accepted as a student and graduated in 1876.

Adrian Scott Stokes travelled a lot, including to Fontainebleau and Barbizon. There he came into contact with "plein air" landscape painting and met Jules Bastien-Lepage. He was a master of landscape and portrait painting. Stokes loved very much to get to know other countries, other people and to discover new things. In 1884 he married the Austrian artist, Marianne Preindlesberger. She is well known in the art world under her married name Maria Stokes. The couple liked to spend their summers in the northernmost parts of Denmark, where there was a well-known artists' colony (The Skagen Painters). They soon became good friends with Michael and Anna Ancher. This period influenced Stoke's work a lot. After an extended stay in France, the couple finally returned to England and settled in Carbis Bay in Cornwall. Cornwall, with its steep, rugged coastline and wild landscapes, has always been a magnet for writers and artists. Stokes and his wife joined the St Ives Artists' Colony in 1886. Afterwards the couple caught the travel bug again and they undertook extensive journeys to Tyrol, Slovakia and Hungary. In 1908 they returned to England.

The couple brought back many new impressions from each trip, which Stokes processed in his paintings. Each of his pictures has atmosphere and character. In addition, he wrote a treatise on landscape painting in 1925 under the title "Landscape Painting". In 1909 he was awarded the title ARA. In 1919 he was appointed a permanent member of the Royal Academy. Stokes won several medals at the Paris exhibition and the World Exhibition in Chicago. He became the first president of the St. Ives Society of Arts. In addition, he became vice president of the Royal Watercolour Society. Marianne Stokes died in 1927, her husband followed her 8 years later. Both were buried at Mortlake Roman Catholic Cemetery in London. Stokes was considered so famous that an obituary was dedicated to him in the London Times.

Stoke's works are characterized by delicate colors, clearly recognizable landscapes and impressions from his many travels. In contrast to many other artists of their time, Stokes and his wife preferred to live in artists' colonies rather than alone. His works were especially influenced by the northernmost part of Denmark. He was regarded as a cosmopolitan and sociable person. His wife Marianne was also very successful. The marriage was considered to be very harmonious, which was also reflected in their artistic work. © Meisterdrucke
