Leslie and Julia Stephen in Grindelwald, Switzerland, 1889
by Gabriel Loppé (1825-1913)

Leslie and Julia Stephen

After Leslie Stephen’s first winter expedition to the Alps in 1877 he realized that he was in love with Julia Duckworth: “There was a music running through me... delicious and inspiring. Julia was that strange solemn music to which my whole nature seemed to be set.” The widowers, Leslie Stephen and Julia Duckworth, were neighbors at Hyde Park Gate in London. Julia was fifteen years younger than Leslie. This picture was taken on a trip to the Alps after they were married.
