From the collection of the distinguished American mezzo-soprano Marilyn Horne (b. 1934).

Rumpf (1856-1927) painted a number of portraits of composers based on contemporary images including several of Schumann.

"Horne had a voice of extraordinary range, rich and tangy in timbre, with a stentorian chest register and an exciting top... In concert she once achieved the feat of singing in a single programme Rossini arias and Brünnhilde’s Immolation Scene, proof of her exceptional versatility. Throughout her lengthy career she was an admired recitalist, singing lieder, mélodies, Spanish and American songs with equal aplomb." Alan Blyth in Grove Music Online.
