You are most welcome, Al_bina! I think they did a bit of photoshopping for those pics,
but that's fair enough and quite normal these days.

The personality of Duchess of Alba is extremely interesting, but could we find more about her children and grandchildren( besides wikipedia)? It could be interesting to get more informed about her family, maybe someone knows a link.

Spanish baroness says hard times forced her to sell painting
Spanish Baroness ‘Tita’ Sells Painting, Fetches $35 Million
Quote:
An early 19th century masterpiece has become one of the most expensive British paintings ever sold. It’s a landscape called “The Lock” by John Constable, and it sold Tuesday night at auction for more than $35 million. Constable’s masterpiece was causing quite a stir in Spain even before the sale. At a recent press conference, the blond, bejeweled 69-year-old owner said she hoped her extremely important painting would fetch a lot of money. She said it was crucial for her as she needs the dough. “People say I’m a millionaire,” Carmen Cervera Thyseen told reporters, “but I’m not. Maybe I am in terms of the all the paintings I own. But I’m asset rich and cash poor.”
