More About this Item


Description

Marjorie Bates was born in Melbourne, Derbyshire, being the younger daughter of George and Emily Bates. George Bates made a considerable fortune in the manufacture of mosquito netting which enabled Marjorie to live comfortably in later years, although her paintings also sold well. The family soon moved to "The Grange" in Wilford, near Nottingham. Marjorie Bates studied at the Nottingham School of Art and under Jean Paul Laurens in Paris. She exhibited at the Royal Academy and other venues, and was a member of the Nottingham Society of Artists and the Pastel Society. Nottingham remained her home for the rest of her life, her studio being in the Nottingham Lace Market at one time. Her output was quite prolific and her paintings, plus many drawings, were used to print postcards, greeting cards, calendars and book illustrations. Some were produced as framed prints and are often mistaken for original watercolours, pastels or drawings. They are often architectural or street scenes. During the First World War she joined the Red Cross and acted as a nurse in Malta. Unfortunately the man she intended to marry died in the war, but following the later break-up of her sister's marriage she looked after her children. In later years she travelled through Europe quite frequently. She also travelled to Rhodesia where she had relatives. Marjorie passed away in 1962.
