1842-1845 Doña Dolores Caldes de Montserrat by Luis López Piquer (Museo de Bellas Artes, Valencia Spain)

A sober-looking Doña Dolores looks out of the canvas in this 1842-5 portrait by Piquer. Montserrat is near the middle of Spain's Mediterranean coast in Valencia. It is also the name of a Caribbean island with Soufrière Hills volcano that erupted in 1995 and remains active.
