The third and in Dresden born daughter of the Schumanns was according to general notion the most beautiful Schumann girl. Because of her health state, Julie Schumann lived most of the time with friends of Clara Schumann in the south, where she also made acquaintance with her later husband, count Vittorio Amadeo Radicati di Marmorito, whom she married in 1869 in Lichtenthal by Baden-Baden, at that time the residence of her mother. Johannes Brahms acted as man of honor, although very sorry, since he admired Julie very much. Julie died three years after the marriage when she gave birth to her third child. Nowadays there are still direct descendants of this family, grandchildren and great-grandchildren of Robert and Clara Schumann. (I.B.)

This picture was taken when Julie was on the verge of marriage with count Radicatio di Marmorite from Turin. A portrait made of her in Turin also short time before she married looks exceedingly similiar.
