Baron Cuno von Bodenhausen (1852-1931)
[Carl Von Bodenhausen, Cuno De Bodenhausen, Cuno (Baron de) Bodenhausen, Cuno Freiherr von Bodenhausen,
Kuno "von" Bodenhausen; Kuno Georg Hermann Bodenhausen]
Carl von Bodenhausen, a well-known German artist, is admirably represented by his "Voices of Fairyland,"
a picture which attracted much attention in the exhibitions of his native country some years ago.
It is a time-honored German story which it illustrates; telling how a maiden whose home was embittered
by harsh parents and sisters, a sort of Cinderella, as it might be, fell asleep beside a haunted stream,
and was awakened by the voices of the pitying fairies, who presaged for her a grand future, which in
due course came to pass, for she was wooed and won by a handsome prince in disguise, and became a queen
and the ruler over the wicked people whose cruelty had once oppressed her.
