Marianne Stokes (neé Preindlsberger) was born in southern Austria and studied in Munich and France, where she worked under Colin and Courtois. She worked in the provinces as well as in Paris, and, like many young artists, was influenced by the rustic naturalists led by Bastien-Lepage. She adopted methods similar to theirs, and even though her subject matter gradually changed from rustic genre to medieval romance and biblical themes, her style continued to show her artistic allegiance clearly.

She exhibited throughout the 1890s at the Royal Academy, and held a joint exhibition with her husband, the English landscape artist Adrian Stokes, at the Fine Art Society in 1900.

The following obituary appeared in the The Connoisseur in September 1927:

"The Late Mrs. Adrian Stokes."
Marianne Prendlsberger Stokes, born in Graz, Austria, began exhibiting at the Royal Academy in 1884. The following year she was using her husband's name and was professionally known as Mrs. Adrian Stokes. Her figure and "fancy" subjects demonstrated her charm, sensitivity and skill as a painter. She was an Associate of the Royal Society of Painters in Water Colours. She was a pleasant person whose work, with its "curiously subtle appeal, deserves remembrance." She had been ill for some time.
