Clara Schumann's portrait was perhaps (for some times) better known to Germans than that of any other woman, due to the fact that it was printed on the front side of the 100DM banknote of the set used all over Germany since 1990. The backside showed her instrument, the piano. Unfortunately (from an aesthetic point of view), these notes were superseded on January 1st, 2002 by the comparatively bland Euro notes.
